Matching Gift Opportunities
In June 2009, Marian University received a letter from a former trustee informing us of a historic $6 million gift. This represents the second-largest gift from an individual ever made to the university. It is also significant because the donor recognized our outstanding progress in recent years and wishes to support our continued growth. This gift will be used to match other gifts for improvements on campus, dollar-for-dollar (up to $1 million). A minimum investment of $5,000 is required to receive the match. This represents an excellent opportunity for investors who are interested in enhancing the academic facilities and other laboratories of learning at a great Catholic university.
In October 2009, Marian University received a $5 million gift for scholarships. The donor received an education from a Catholic university and understands firsthand the distinctive nature of our great teaching and learning environment. The donor requested that the gift be used as a match for scholarships to benefit our students. It is the donor's wish, and our belief, that this act of generosity will inspire others to make scholarship gifts, resulting in a $10 million investment in our students. A minimum gift of $7,500 is required to establish a scholarship and receive the donor's match.
