Determined students, talented faculty, passionate alumni and an uplifting community- that’s what composes the Marshall family.

The Marshall University Foundation assists in growing and strengthening the Marshall family by guiding the transition of student to donor through the creation of relationships. The Foundation seeks to bring home to Marshall those who were afforded transformational opportunities and strive to perpetually enhance those offered; eager storytellers who fervently believe devotion to lifelong learning yields personal growth and success, particularly through higher education.

Loyal supporters work together to create a legacy where Marshall rises. Through scholarship and professorship support, program and research funding and gifts to expand our facilities, each graduating class is experiencing a new era of excellence because you are championing our unprecedented growth.

Alumni, like Brad and Alys Smith, are making a difference through gifts that will impact our entire region. Their support of a new College of Business facility will allow for the iCenter, an entrepreneurship lab in the Brad D. Smith Schools of Business, to have a respectable space on Marshall’s campus.

At the Marshall University Foundation, we are people sharing the product of dreams and fostering the circle of gratitude through each generation, and we are on the rise.
