Claire Miller ’16 loves Disney movies. She hopes to work for Disney or Pixar.
The accounting major from South Bend picked Manchester University to follow her career star because of generous scholarships. She is learning that she is able to afford an excellent college experience. She receives lots more help behind the scene. Annual gifts to The Manchester Fund support small class sizes that nurture mentoring and side-by-side academic collaborations with her teachers.
With a 125-year culture of stewardship, MU also uses those annual gifts to The Manchester Fund to provide comfortable, well-lit study areas, laboratory equipment, WiFi connections across campus, a safe environment, nutritious meals and a wealth of other student-focused support.
All sizes of gifts comprise The Manchester Fund. Large donations create opportunities for major maintenance and projects. Steady, year-after-year giving pays the heating and lighting bills – kind of like a paycheck does.
At Manchester, Claire is learning to give back, too. She volunteers, just as thousands of Manchester students have before her.
“My education is possible because of your generosity,” says Claire. “Won’t you make your gift today?”
