This campaign ended on March 04, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Marquette University by clicking here!


Give Marquette Day is making a comeback!

For the last two years, Give Marquette Day has represented an impactful day for the Marquette community to come together and collectively Be The Difference. Last year, in just one day, 2,014 donors contributed $551,891 in support of Marquette students, faculty, and programs. Of that total, an impressive 432 donors contributed $139,610 to support our Sport Excellence Funds and impact all 16 of our Marquette Athletics programs

With the support of generous alumni, parents and friends, we are excited to bring back Give Marquette Day and hope you are too! The university's overarching goal this year is to secure 2,020 donors on Tuesday, March 3rd. For our Sport Excellence Funds, we are aiming to secure the $22,000 matching gift provided by M Club who has pledged to match the first $2,000 contributed to each of our Sport Excellence Funds. Additionally, a pair of generous anonymous alumni have teamed up to offer a dollar-for-dollar match up to $20,000.

Sport Excellence Funds are imperative as they provide support for the greatest needs of each program and allow our Marquette Athletics programs to continue the tradition of excellence in providing student-athletes with high quality education, competition, and developmental experiences that will continue to impact them far beyond their time at Marquette in line with our Jesuit value of cura personalis. You can get involved in two easy ways:

Stay tuned for live updates on progress and special giving challenges that will allow your contributions to have an even bigger impact. Visit marquette.edu/give-marquette-day for updates and challenges on other areas of the university.

We Are Marquette!
