Gifts that keep Giving

A UMW friend recently made a gift that doubled the size of the scholarship she named in memory of her husband. On April 25, 2012, Mary Jane O’Neill notified the University of a new gift that now brings the Robert C. O’Neill Scholarship Endowment up to $100,000. Beginning in the fall of 2013, the scholarship will be awarded to undergraduate students with declared majors in the College of Business.

Longtime residents of Fredericksburg, the O’Neills were active in economic and real estate development. Mr. O’Neill passed away in 2007. Mrs. O’Neill is now a member of the UMW Washington Society, which recognizes cumulative lifetime giving of $100,000 and more.

This gift announcement is from the Division of Advancement and University Relations.
