You came to this Marygrove #GivingTuesday site because you care! 
Thank you so much.  You can make a huge difference in the life of a Marygrove student who needs gap funding to cross the finish line…to graduate. 

  • 92% of Marygrove Students receive one or more forms of financial aid.
  • More than 70% of Marygrove students qualify for Federal Pell Grants, which are now coming in smaller amounts and for shorter periods of time. 
  • Many students are just a semester away from graduation but have run out of money. 

On our students’ behalf, thank you for #GivingTuesday.

Finish Line Scholarship Fund Success!

We are happy to report that our #GivingTuesday efforts raised $4,456 to launch the Finish Line Scholarship Fund!  It is only through your generosity that Marygrove is now able offer seniors this type of financial assistance and it is greatly appreciated. 


Alums, faculty, staff, friends and parents came together for one day and one purpose – to help Marygrove seniors graduate.  Our donors hailed from 6 different states and class years 1958 through 2016. 


Thank you for being the important 1 in 51 generous donors for Marygrove College’s first year participating in #GivingTuesday!  Go Mustangs!
