We challenged you to team up with fellow MC community members and raise money for a very important cause - Maryville College! You've been sending in your gifts, and we've been keeping track.
With your help, we exceeded our gift goal and secured 711 gifts. The MC family helped us raise $208,772. Add that to our challenge gift of $100,000 for a grand total of $308,772.
Thank you for helping us keep our promise to our students on Tartan Tuesday. Because of your support, MC is a vibrant, innovative learning community that engages students in personal and intellectual growth, equipping them with the skills needed to pursue meaningful careers! We couldn't have done it without you.
