The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund

has issued a $100,000 challenge grant for Marylhurst's new Master of Science in Food Systems & Society program. This two-year, cohort-based program focuses on educating future leaders who will create a healthy, just and sustainable food system.

When you designate your gift* to the Master of Science in Food Systems & Society program,  it will be matched dollar for dollar (up to $10,000 per gift) by the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund and will benefit the MS in Food Systems & Society.

Help us reach our deadline of June 30, 2014!

As of January 15, seven months after receiving the challenge, we have raised more than $70,000. Join those who have risen to the challenge. You can help make it happen!
