The Marian Fund


The Marian Fund directly supports Marian University students and the university’s vision to provide an education distinguished in its ability to prepare transformative leaders for service to the world. Annual giving builds a solid foundation necessary to sustain the Marian University experience and enhancing unique learning opportunities for our students.

Please consider supporting Marian University students by making a one-time or recurring gift to the Marian Fund.

Participation doesn’t mean making a big gift, it means making a gift.

Annual giving provides vital support that helps the university fulfill its mission. When a donor makes an annual gift, they join thousands of alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends in making a difference. These gifts make a combined impact that is extraordinary, by supporting innovative programs, urgent needs, and important priorities.

High alumni participation sends a clear message to our students that those who came before them place a high value on their education and are willing to invest in the institution.

U.S. News & World Report and other college guides use alumni giving participation to calculate the rank of the college/university.

Foundations and corporations who provide generous private support look to our alumni giving percentage as a sign of a stable, well-supported university.

Your gift, in any amount, helps support Marian University programs and initiatives that defined your experience at Marian University and create opportunities to preserve the Marian legacy.
