Alumni & Parent Giving

Alumni Giving

Each year our Alumni support Marquette through the Annual Appeal. Many alumni also participate by providing a financial gift to the Annual Appeal drive. Most often this occurs by simply returning the envelope attached to the Graduate newsletter. Alumni from each class are needed to help solicit contributions from classmates. If you are interested please contact Mary Hough in the Development Office at 618-463-0585 ext. 1 or email

Parent Giving

Parents are asked to consider a tax-deductible gift to the Annual Appeal. The actual cost to educate Marquette students is more than $1,000 per student, per year, above the amount charged through tuition and fees. This "gap" is made up through annual fundraising events, which help keep a Marquette tuition affordable. The most important annual fundraiser is the Annual Appeal.

Donations to the Annual Appeal can be made online by clicking here or by mailing a check to the school at:
