  • “It was not until I became a Marshall student that I realized that I would like to give back to my school. My feeling at the moment is that one of the ways I could show my appreciation towards Marshall that has significantly affected me is to give back. I want Marshall to stay as good of a school as it is, or even better going forward.” – Ryohei “Joe” Fukuda, Class of 2019, Master of Business Administration

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
