Dear Marquette Alumni, Parents, and Friends,
Marquette is celebrating 132 years of Catholic education! Each year you give, every gift you make impacts the lives of our students every day. If you are an alumnus, you understand the transformative power of a Marquette education. As parents, you know the value of your investment. Dear friends, your support helps graduates go on to make a difference by leading future generations, caring for our communities, and shaping the world.
Today, we launch our 2018-2019 BE more Campaign. As we try and keep up with today's increasing demands for renovation and innovation, we need your help more than ever. Over the past three years, we have installed new efficient windows, renovated our boiler system, implemented 1:1 technology, installed a biometric security system and cameras, upgraded our gymnasium and weight room, and have drafted a strategic plan to guide continued efforts. Our future projects include science lab renovations, expansion at our athletic fields, LED lighting, flooring, and additional cosmetic improvements.
When you give to Marquette, you make a difference.
Most Reverend Bishop Donald J. Hying and the Diocese of Gary have magnanimously offered to match funds raised through BE more Campaign contributions over a five-year period, up to $500,000. In the third year of this campaign, we need to secure $300,000 in gifts to receive the full match from the Diocese. Can you imagine the students we would be able to help and advancements we will be able to make with $600,000? Your gift supports all areas of the school and is used the same year as it is received.
BE more than an alumnus, parent, or friend. Be a participating Blazer! Every gift counts and is fully tax-deductible. Donations can be made with cash, check, credit card, or online at our giving page.
We would like to thank you in advance for your consideration and support!
With sincere thanks and blessings,
James G. White, M.Ed.
