Contributions to these annual funds are used immediately to meet urgent priorities as Marquette educates 11,000 students in the Jesuit educational tradition. In making annual gifts of support, donors can have an immediate and profound impact on today's students and faculty.
While students and parents think of tuition as the true cost of a Marquette education, the reality is that tuition covers only 62 percent of the full cost to educate a Marquette student. Every year, the university supplements tuition for each student with thousands of dollars of additional support. Consistent, annual giving is the financial lifeblood sustaining the university's day-to-day mission of delivering a transformational education characterized by excellence, faith, leadership and service.
