John Stuart Society

John Stuart Society - Dedicated to the mission and future of UD through a lifetime of giving

Leaders with Vision

The University of Dayton was founded on faith. In 1850, John Stuart transferred his 120-acre farm to the Marianists for a medal of St. Joseph and a promise of payment.

Stuart’s belief in the Marianists and their vision for education changed the world. That farm has become a community reaching across time and beyond borders. The John Stuart Society was formed in 1983 to honor alumni and friends who are clearly dedicated to the mission and future of the University of Dayton through a lifetime of giving.

Members of the John Stuart Society share this bold vision with cumulative giving of $100,000 or more. Please see the honor roll for a list of current members.
