Proud to provide educational support to students who would otherwise not have such opportunities.

We believe that education is the greatest gift we can give our youth; it builds a solid foundation for greater success. Our Maguire Scholars Program is a lifeline for students in need, from grade school through college, providing low-income families with scholarship dollars to attend institutions that otherwise would be a financial burden. We are building a network of partners with schools to support education initiatives. As men and women for others, we encourage our Maguire Scholars to dedicate their time and talent to community service.

Giving Back to Her Alma Mater:
Making a Difference for Gwynedd Mercy University

James and Frances Maguire celebrate the dedication of Frances M. Maguire Hall with President Kathleen Owens and Donald Zamborsky

Inspired by her parents’ career in healthcare, Frances M. Maguire earned a medical secretary degree from Gwynedd Mercy University in 1955. Healthcare has always played an important role in her life–her father was a prominent surgeon and her mother was a nurse. She returned to study nursing in the mid-70s and in 2010, Frances and James honored Gwynedd Mercy University with an extraordinary gift to name the university’s nursing school The Frances M. Maguire School of Nursing and Health Professions. The gift, the largest alumni gift in the history of the university, formed an endowment for the school while supporting scholarships, faculty, and best practice technology and equipment. In 2015, the name of the university’s 50,000 square foot health and science facility was changed to Frances M. Maguire Hall. Read more about the new center for nursing.
