Giving Societies of Marquette University


President's Society

The President’s Society of Marquette University each year recognizes a special group of benefactors whose strong annual support helps us provide students with a transformative, Catholic and Jesuit education with a commitment to academic excellence. Named for the president of Marquette University, the society was created to encourage annual giving and recognize the generous contributions of those who make cash gifts of $2,500* to more than $25,000 to the university within a year.

Consistent, annual giving is the financial lifeblood that sustains the university. Through the President’s Society, Marquette recognizes and thanks these generous benefactors and encourages others to consider their contributions to Marquette.

Membership in the President’s Society offers special benefits of preferred access to university information, leadership and special programs. In addition, each fall we publish an “Honor Roll” of President’s Society members to publicly thank those whose gifts have qualified them for membership during the past fiscal year.

But perhaps the most meaningful reward is the knowledge of having strengthened Marquette’s mission of developing men and women for others. Regardless of where your interests lie and how you wish to direct your gift, be assured it is greatly needed and deeply appreciated.

*Recent undergraduate alumni can join the President’s Society as a Brooks member at alternate levels (please see the Young Alumni Giving Levels chart below).



Every gift becomes a part of the university’s heritage. In this spirit, we have named the various levels of giving after early esteemed presidents of Marquette. Learn more.
