Major Gifts



The DaytonView Gift

The West Ohio Conference and Dayton First UMC congregation have gifted to the seminary the property on Salem Avenue that belonged previously to First UMC, in Dayton. The First UMC congregation is sharing space with another church, but wanted to see the massive building continue to serve the purposes of ministry in the Dayton View area.


The Mauerhan Gift

The Seminary is pleased to receive a substantial bequest from the estate of Anna Claire Mauerhan, long-time trustee and friend of United. Ms. Mauerhan died on June 7, 2012, in Anaheim, CA. Her nephew, Richard Mauerhan, was an alumnus of United and brought with him the care and support of his entire family. The Mauerhans have made great contributions to the seminary, including the seminary conference room named in Anna Claire’s honor. She was a global traveler and always a gracious host for the seminary. Her Christian faith was unfaltering and her kindness was unforgettable.
