Mark your calendar for April 11, 2024, to celebrate Day for the Knights. We are continuing our Journey to 2030: Always Forward to build a better future for our university and students. On this day, we will celebrate on campus and ask all who believe in the Marian mission and values to donate to the Marian school, team, scholarship, and other initiatives that are near and dear to you. Be sure to follow us on social media and watch for emails about this day.

Day for the Knights: The Single largest donor day in Marian history!

When is it?

Our goal is to secure 2,500 gifts totaling $250,000 raised, which will support Marian’s schools, athletics, students, and initiatives.

Who is this day for?
This day is for everyone who believes in Marian’s mission to be a great Catholic university dedicated to achieving excellence in learning, which is achieved through teaching, research, and scholarly activities in the Franciscan and liberal arts tradition. Whether you are on campus, an alumni, parent of a student, or simply a Friend of Marian, we need you!

As a Team Captain, you have three roles: liaison, cheerleader, and event coordinator. You will be provided with information to share with your respective team to drum up excitement among your colleagues, peers, constituents, and alumni. It’s up to you to decide how your team will celebrate. Hold your own event, wear Marian gear or specific color that day, or hold a competition.
