175:Marshall was founded 175 years ago. Many young givers have found the 1837 Society to be a great way to participate in the life of the University...for less than $20 a month.

Getting started giving back.

St. Albans native Lisa Starcher wasn't really sure where she wanted to go when she was looking for a place to continue her education, and that was one of the things that made Marshall the perfect choice.

“I liked that Marshall was close to home and it was a great size, in that it was big enough to offer a lot of options while I was figuring out what I wanted to major in, and it was also small enough to have an atmosphere where I felt comfortable,” said Lisa.

Lisa graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2006 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting degree. She says she got a good education and made close friends. Now working with Arnett & Foster, West Virginia’s largest accounting firm, she began looking at how she could make her university better than ever.

“I had always planned to give back to Marshall but I didn’t really know how,” said Lisa.

Lisa found that joining the 1837 Society was a great way to get started giving back. Each month she gives $18.37 cents to the university.

“I really like the fact that I could donate to Marshall and designate what college I wanted the donation to go,” said Lisa.
