Support the Center


We've made a good deal of progress in our renovation of the Photojournalism Lab in Lee Hills Hall, but we need your help to reach our $300,000 goal.

We're still in the process of outfitting an audio recording studio and a "legacy darkroom," where students will be able to develop film and to make traditional silver-paper prints. The lab will also have digital video editing bays.


Mac and Betty's contribution is a combination of an outright cash gift and an estate gift that has enabled us to establish an endowment fund for the Center so that it will live in perpetuity. We've also had wonderful response from some alumni already. Ray Wong, a former student of Mac's and a Missouri graduate, wrote after seeing a news release in January about the McDougall's gift:

...I read with great interest about the McDougall Center — a great tribute to Mac and Betty.... Mardy and I also would like to help support the Center too. What do I need to do?
They made a meaningful donation that reflected the influence Mac and Missouri had on Ray's life. You can, too.

You can contribute online today!

Simply follow the link below. Select "Other" and type "The McDougall Center" into the comment box.

Please call or write if you have questions about how your gift can be made — over five years if you like or about how your employer might be able to match the donation you make.
