SBJ’s 40 Under 40 Charity Partner Fundraiser – Congratulate Elyse Riley with your gift!

Congratulations to Springfield Business Journal 40 Under 40 honoree Elyse Riley! Elyse says, “History is one of the most important subjects we can gift ourselves throughout each generation. We learn how to become better as a society. Where we live has a unique and somewhat painful history-from the lynching on the square in 1906, the Young Brothers Massacre in 1932, to the controversy at Southwest Missouri State with the play “Normal Heart” in 1989. I love being a part of organizations that are dedicated to building a better and strong future for this community.”

Support Elyse’s fundraising efforts for the History Museum on the Square’s educational programming for local schools by making your donation below today!



All proceeds from the 40 Under 40 charity partner fundraiser will support the History Museum on the Square’s educational programming, including our newest program, Meet Missouri.

In the Meet Missouri program, students will have the opportunity to experience history like never before. Centered around notable Missourians, the Meet Missouri programming offers field trips, scavenger hunts, and interactive experiences to bring Missouri history to life! Missouri is a beautiful state, but to truly know its history, you must know its people.

Help us fund educational programming and provide scholarships to students!
