About

What is your why? 

As we celebrate Marietta College Founders Day (and Valentine's Day) with our annual Day of Giving, we're also celebrating all of the reasons we give back. We're looking for 1,200 alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends to show why #MCGives by making a gift of any size on February 14, 2024.

Invest in what's closest to your heart, challenge your friends, and help your class, Greek chapter or athletic team compete for special prizes underwritten by The Long Blue Line. (Make sure you select those affinities during check out so you can see your gift reflected on our leaderboards) You can even offer a match or challenge yourself to inspire others!

We did it!


While we'll report on our final results tomorrow, one thing's for sure: we've never seen an outpouring of love like this!

Together we shattered the previous Day of Giving record of $283,595, with givers from all over the world and almost every state in the country. Our donations will create new opportunities for students and ensure the things we love the most continue to thrive on our campus as we bring Marietta Forward.

We're grateful for all of the love!

One Final Challenge


It's our final hour, and Trustee Jack Hopkins '65 has offered a special challenge: If we raise another $10,000 for our students before midnight, Jack will make an additional $2,000 donation.

Let's finish the big day by leveraging that love - thank you for your generosity!

Can we fill the map?

We've seen an outpouring of love from all over the world today, but we're still missing just two more states: Do you know a Pioneer from South Dakota or Mississippi?

If so, please reach out and encourage them to join you in supporting our students. Just two more givers will complete our map - let's spread the love!

Just for Students!


Hey Pios! You don't have to give a lot to have a big impact, especially with the special matches and challenges sponsored by fellow Pioneers. If you're a current student, your gift of just $5 or more - to any program - will be met with an additional $50 Marietta Fund donation from President Drugovich today, up to $5,000.

Make your gift today and make the President pay! 😉
