Hillsboro, MO (KSDK) - A Eureka golf club owner is donating $1 million to a Jefferson County community college.

David Ault, CEO of Fox Run Golf Club, Fox Run Builders, and Eureka Springs Inc, signed a $500,000 bequest and built a luxury home to benefit the Jefferson College Foundation, totaling more than $1 million.

The 4,400-square foot eco-friendly residence will serve as a venue for fundraising, receptions, business activities and donor cultivation in support of the college's development.

David Ault's gift is the largest personal donation in the Jefferson College Foundation's history and sets a standard for future donors.

The Jefferson College Foundation was formed in 1991 to bolster the growth and development of its students, faculty, staff and campus facilities.
