In 1977, a group of dedicated Missouri S&T supporters founded the Order of the Golden Shillelagh. These founders realized that private support was necessary to maintain the high quality of education associated with the school since its founding in 1870. OGS was conceived as a way for people to “pick up the shillelagh” to promote the welfare of the institution and encourage others to become members of OGS.

OGS Giving Levels
Donors are recognized as members of OGS with a pledge of $15,000 or cumulative lifetime giving of at least $25,000 to the university or the Miner Alumni Association. In addition, OGS offers ten upper giving levels—called claghns. Established to appropriately recognize those who continue to give at higher levels, claghn levels are based on lifetime giving, including corporate matches, pledges, estates and other documented planned gifts. The gift of resources and time are recognized through the OGS celebration, the Shillelagh newsletter and the Honor Roll of Donors.
All gifts made to Missouri University of Science and Technology count toward membership in OGS. Gifts may be designated for any department, program or university-approved area, or a combination of areas.
