Giving Societies of Marquette University


Every gift to Marquette becomes a part of the university’s heritage. Whether it is directed toward scholarship aid and the wonderful impact it has on current and future students or to other important needs of the university, every gift leaves an enduring imprint as we pursue our mission of promoting access and excellence as a Catholic and Jesuit university. We invite you to join us in preparing our students to engage and shape the world. Below, please find information about our annual giving society, lifetime giving society and planned giving society.


The President's Society is Marquette’s way of recognizing and thanking those who have helped to advance the university through annual giving of $2,500 to more than $25,000. Annual gifts can be directed to any area or need that is important to you. In addition to being recognized as a benefactor, you will have preferred access to university leadership, communication and programming. Learn more about the President's Society.


Celebrating individuals and organizations whose giving to Marquette has reached or exceeded $1 million, the Founders Society seeks to honor these benefactors for the profound impact they have had on Marquette and our students. Members are awarded a special medal acknowledging their status as distinguished benefactors; are included in a limited group of individuals who receive invitations to presidential and special events, programs and gatherings; have private access to university leadership; and receive communication and information from the university throughout the year. Learn more about the Archbishop John Martin Henni Founders Society.
