Faculty and Staff Giving

Why is faculty and staff giving so important?

Contributions from current and retired faculty and staff provide funding for programs, departments, and scholarships at Marian University. Equally as important is the strong message sent to those outside the Marian University community. Faculty and staff giving announces to alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, and community partners that we support Marian University and feel it is worthy of their support, too.

Your generous gift of time and talent to Marian University are what help keep this institution strong and positioned for continued success. Equally important is the understanding that our connection to the students and our mission is imperative to building and maintaining a solid foundation for growth. Faculty and staff work daily to make Marian University better and help our students prepare for the future.

A gift to Marian University can help support programs that will continue to strengthen Marian University and help current faculty, staff, and students achieve even greater success. Many of you have made a commitment to this effort already, and we are extremely thankful. For those of you who are new to Marian University or who have not yet thought about making a gift, please consider participating in the faculty and staff campaign

How can I make my gift?

Employees can direct their gifts to the program of their choice through a payment option that works best for them, including payroll deduction.

  • Payroll Deduction Form (Your gift is deducted from your paycheck each month).

  • Write a check payable to the Marian University

  • Give online with a credit or debit card

  • Gift planning: Learning how to earn income, pay fewer taxes, secure your retirement, enhance your net estate, create a personal legacy, or get more from your real estate. Visit the Gift Planning section of our website.

Please join with the many other colleagues and friends who make it a priority to give a gift to Marian University. We look forward to our combined efforts in serving our students, and we appreciate your commitment to Marian University.
