Mizzou Athletics received a $1.675 million gift and the donor wishes to remain anonymous. The donor directed $1 million of the gift to go toward the new football facility in the south end zone at Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field, with the remaining amount to be used for other Athletics initiatives.
“We are so grateful for this very generous gift,” said Director of Athletics Jim Sterk. “It is critical to keep momentum building with our drive for new facilities, and this is exactly the shot in the arm we need to keep that moving forward. Our donor is really pleased to be involved in helping us transform our facilities, and is excited about the future of our football program,” he said.
“I’m very excited about this gift, it’s another very important step in this process,” said Head Football Coach Barry Odom. “Our donors are amazing with the passion they have for Mizzou and for our program. This is the type of support we need to keep things rolling, and I can’t thank our donor enough for their generosity,” he said.
