The Foundation extends a huge thank you to all those who were able to join us to celebrate our 40th anniversary during our Annual Major Donor Dinner on August 30, 2015! Above all, the Foundation was grateful to be able to pay tribute to forty years of philanthropy and all those present for the evening as well as the many more who were unable to join us whose generosity has helped shape the past, present and future of the University and the students who attend MU.
We were honored to have been joined by our Keynote speaker and founder of the Foundation, 1969 alumnus Paul McMillen. McMillen spoke about the critical role the Foundation plays in the evolution of Mansfield University and thanked donors by saying, "The Mansfield University Foundation and each of you through your leadership, your gifts, your time and your endowments have established a legacy that will continue to grow and provide support and assistance to Mansfield University for years to come. Truly, through the Foundation, your lives gain meaning that will forever endure."
We have accomplished a lot together during our first 40 years and empowered countless students to realize their full potential. But what matters most now is what we do next. Thank you for helping the Mansfield Foundation fulfill its mission to providing educational opportunities and scholarships for Mansfield University.
Again, thank you again to everyone who joined us at the celebration - we had so much fun that we're already hatching plans for the next one!
