MC to Receive Largest Gift in College's HistoryDan and Elaine McGill

Maryville College will receive $15 million – the largest gift in the College’s history – from the estate of Dan and Elaine McGill.

“Per their instruction, the gift will be allocated as follows: $1 million will be directed to Anderson Hall, and in their honor, the first floor will henceforth be known as ‘The McGill Family Floor.’ The remaining $14 million is designated for endowed scholarships,” Maryville College President Tom Bogart said during the announcement to MC faculty, staff, students, Board members and other supporters who gathered on May 8 in the Clayton Center for the Arts. “The McGills made this legacy gift so that the College could help talented and deserving young people earn a Maryville College degree.”
