$1.5 Million Mabee Matching Gift

DBU is pleased to announce a $1.5 million matching gift from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation of Tulsa, Oklahoma, to be used toward the construction of Phase 1 of the Transform Campaign, which will develop the east campus of the University and establish DBU’s first Residential College.

Now, your gift to the Transform Campaign has the potential to double its impact and further advance the mission of DBU.

1898 Alumni Giving

DBU first opened its doors in Decatur, Texas, in 1898, and now, some 120 years later, we are calling upon thousands of DBU alumni around the world to help us in expanding the mission of DBU through the Transform Campaign.
