Thank you for your support of Maryville College on Tartan Tuesday, MC’s annual 24-hour giving challenge! With 555 donors, we exceeded the 500-donor challenge – securing $67,500 in challenge gifts – for a grand total of $172,228.79 raised in only 24 hours. All gifts benefit the Maryville Fund, which supports MC’s most pressing needs and makes highly personalized, transformational experiences possible for MC students.
