Mouton Society

The Mouton Society exists to recognize and thank all who include Maryville University in their estate plan through a bequest, beneficiary designation, a gift that pays income, charitable lead trust, or gift of remainder interest in personal residence, vacation home or farm — and who inform the University of same. The philanthropic spirit of alumni and friends has blessed Maryville University since its founding in 1872. These important gifts have had, and will continue to have a major impact on the future of the University.

The Society bears the name of Marie Odeide Mouton, R.S.C.J., Class of 1935, President of Maryville from 1937 to 1956, and a pioneer in the field of education who achieved national prominence.

Members may choose to be Listed or Unlisted. Names of Listed members appear as part of Mouton Society listings in University publications or displays. All Mouton Society members receive invitations to Society events.

  • Invitations to Mouton Society social and educational events
