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.
Mac students will be reaching out to alumni, parents, and friends of MacMurray College, February 9 - 27. These enthusiastic students are eager to talk with you and let you know about current events happening at the College and also to ask for your support of the Annual Fund.
