Livewire is the annual phonathon that serves not only to increase the well-being of the donor through outreach but also to increase the well-being of the student through a healthy Annual Fund. Only 68% of MacMurray's operating costs are covered in tuition dollars, which is why the support of alumni, parents, and friends is so vital to the success of the College. Your support secures the future of MacMurray. Your gift to Livewire ensures that MacMurray will continue to flourish and be to future students all that it was to you — the experience of a lifetime, an experience that transformed you.

Livewire 2014 officially ended on Sunday, Mach 2nd with a great achievement. More than two dozen student callers reached out to 1,825 people over the three-week period of February 9 - March 2, receiving 756 pledges totaling $180,000. Along the way, the student caller team got pledges from 84 new donors and saw 211 people increase their pledges, 31 more than in 2013.

These 27 hardworking student callers, along with the entire office of Institutional Advancement staff, are to thank for this achievement.
