Donors make possibilities real.

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

The Foundation, in collaboration with Marshall University’s

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


Why Giving Matters

Quarterly Donor Spotlight

Jack Houvouras

Marshall Alumnus, Jack Houvouras recently established the John H. Houvouras Scholarship to help full-time undergraduate students at Marshall University’s W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communications. Additionally, through a planned gift, Jack’s scholarship will continue to help Marshall students for generations to come.  

“The people I studied with at Marshall were honorable, hard-working individuals who constantly searched for the truth. I believe that a career in journalism is a very noble calling. Marshall has a proud tradition of producing some of the best journalists in the nation. If I can play a role in continuing that tradition, then I want to do my part.
