Donors make possibilities real.

Make a difference for a student, a professor, a department, a program...

The Foundation, in collaboration with Marshall University's

Office of Development, secures private financial support for the University and encourages alumni giving by offering a variety of ways to give. Every dollar contributed helps students attend Marshall, provides funds to grow and improve

facilities, and enhances curriculum. This all starts with the desire to support excellence at Marshall.
