Support Marian University’s efforts to provide an education that transforms lives, society, and the world by making a gift today.
Gifts of Cash
Join the thousands of alumni and friends who believe in the Marian Miracle and make an immediate tax-deductible gift by credit card or check. You can make your gift online, by phone at 317.955.6019, or by mailing your check (payable to Marian University) to the Office of Institutional Advancement at the address below. If you would like to make a major cash gift and pay your gift over a specific period of time, please contact John Finke, Vice President of Institutional Advancement at 317.955.6202 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a pledge form.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of stock may be transferred directly to Marian University, saving the donor from paying capital gains tax. Stock transfer instructions are available online, or you may contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 317.955.6019.
Planned and Deferred Gifts
Legacy gifts, made through a bequest, a designation of the university as a beneficiary to a life insurance policy, or a designation of the university as a beneficiary to retirement plan benefits, can enable you to make a significant gift and provide the resources so that Marian University can continue its mission. Other deferred giving instruments, including charitable gift annuities and trusts, can provide you and your loved ones with lifetime income, while also making a charitable gift.
An endowed gift is invested so that the annual earnings can be used to support scholarships for generations to come. There are over 150 endowed scholarships, so donors can always find one that matches their interest and passion, or create a new endowed scholarship in honor of a loved one. For more information about creating a new endowed scholarship, please contact John Finke, Vice President of Institutional Advancement at 317.955.6202 or email@example.com.
Honor Gifts and Memorial Gifts
You may make a gift to Marian University in honor or in memory of an individual. We’ll even send a special message notifying the individual or family of the honor or memorial gift. For more information, please contact Alex Parker, Director of Annual Giving at 317.955.6525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
More than 1,000 corporations nationwide match employee gifts to Marian University. Many also match the gifts of retired employees and their spouses. Companies that provide these matching funds supply the form to submit with the gift. If your employer is a matching gift company, you may obtain a form from your company's personnel or community relations office.
