“A scholarship afforded me a chance to live my dreams and give back to my hometown, the parish I grew up in, and so many others through my education. You can’t put a price on this.”  - Emanuel

MAKE YOUR REUNION CLASS GIFT TODAY!


What is Reunion giving?

Reunion giving is a year-long fundraising effort that takes place leading up to Alumni Reunion Weekend. Reunions are a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate support for your alma mater and to pay it forward for future generations of Marquette students. Classes are challenged to come together to reach specific donor and dollar goals to give back to the Marquette community.

How can I contribute to my class gift?

If you are celebrating a reunion in 2020 and would like to participate, all you have to do is make a gift! Gifts — of any amount to support any area of campus — made between July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020, count. While all contributions are recognized in the reunion class gift totals, annual gifts are an important and valuable expression of support you can make to the university.

The following annual funds immediately support students at Marquette:

  • Bridge to the Future Fund: Scholarship support for current students whose financial situation has changed.
  • Student Affairs Excellence Fund: Provides a variety of essential and immediate supports for our students, including our Backpack Program, which provides free groceries to any Marquette student who is having difficulty accessing affordable, nutritious food, as well as personal hygiene products.
  • Scholarship Fund: Provides critically needed scholarship aid to help make an outstanding Marquette education attainable for bright, motivated students.
  • Blue & Gold Fund: Directed to scholarships for Marquette student-athletes.
  • Marquette Fund: Strengthens academic and student life, enables innovation, improves facilities and more.
