  • Scholarship Honor Brunch 2019

    Marshall University donors and current recipients of privately funded scholarships honored April 13, 2019 at the annual Scholarship Honor Brunch.



    “These scholarships have been very helpful to me already, but I also know they will help me when I graduate. They have prevented me from accumulating student (loan) debt, and because of that, I will be able to enter my career without that baggage on my back.” – Casey Mosire, senior, marketing

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.


Why Giving Matters

Planned Giving Quarterly Donor Spotlight

Audy Perry

“Marshall University is critical to the success of our region. As Marshall University grows, so does our region. Marshall has given so many opportunities to my family and friends that it is just a natural response to that gift. A legacy gift is key to the university planning for the future and weathering those unknown financial storms that may lay ahead.”
– Audy Perry, Marshall University donor
