$1.5 million gift to John Mahoney Scholarship

Quincy University says it's received the largest donation to an endowed scholarship fund in the school's history.

QU said Tuesday that it's received a $1.5 million gift to support the John Mahoney Scholarship. The school says in a statement that the gift, from an anonymous donor, will enhance the scholarship for students majoring in the humanities. That scholarship was established in 2019 with a previous gift from the same donor. The principal value of the scholarship is now nearly $2.5 million. Mahoney was a 1966 Quincy College, now Quincy University, graduate and Tony Award-winning actor, who was most famous for his role as Martin Crane on the long-running
NBC sitcom, "Frasier".

Mahoney passed away in 2018 at the age of 77.
