A graduate of the MU School of Journalism has donated $864,800 to the advertising department.

The donor, who asked to remain anonymous, wants to help students have the best educational experience and to help the department provide facilities and faculty in support of that goal, said Margaret Duffy, advertising department chairwoman.

“In addition, these graduates credit much of their success to the preparation they received at the J-School,” she said. “They love the school and want to give back to today’s students.”

The gift, which will enhance the strategic communication studies in the advertising department, is the second-largest gift to the department in the past month. The estate of alum Paul Synor announced a $2.5 million gift in January.
