Give Marquette Day, which took place February 22, was an incredible success thanks to the outpouring of support from alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends.
We far exceeded our goal of securing 800 donors in 24 hours. By the end of the day, 1,591 donors contributed $500,010 to support a wide range of opportunities at the university, including student scholarships, college programs, athletics and many others. These results include 74 gifts made by students.
The class with the highest donor count was the Class of 2018. In honor of their victory, Provost Myers will sport a shirt claiming, “2018 is the Best Class Ever” at an upcoming student event.
