Why Give?

Marquette is always in need of financial support because the annual gap -- this difference between revenue from tuition and the actual expenses of the school -- is more than $1,900 per student.

The Marquette tradition is that this $1,900 gap is covered through annual donations from alumni, past and current parents and friends of Marquette. A donation through the Annual Appeal or one of our fundraising events, such as the Explorer Classic golf tournament or Auction Dinner, directly supports our students by allowing us to keep tuition affordable and provide all the opportunities we offer our students.  

Larger gifts including scholarships, endowments, memorials and bequests are necessary to fund capital projects so that Marquette may always maintain its high academic standards and the best facilities possible.
