Marquette Community Campaign

The 2023 Marquette Community Campaign kicked off on February 21 and culminated with Give Marquette Day on March 7. 

Community Campaign gives faculty and staff the opportunity to join together in support of Marquette, the United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) and United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County. In addition to making a difference in the Marquette and Milwaukee communities, the goal of the campaign is to strengthen the university’s culture of philanthropy through campus-wide participation. 

Thank you for everything you do for Marquette, our students and our community. We hope you will join us for the Community Campaign and Give Marquette Day!

Giving to Marquette

Scholarship aid continues to be one of Marquette University’s highest priorities. You can help make our scholarship offerings more competitive, ensuring promising students have the opportunity to choose Marquette, and to make sure current students who have unmet need are able to stay enrolled.

You may direct your gift to the general Scholarship Fund, or choose to support scholarships specific to a particular college. You may also support student-athlete scholarships through the Blue & Gold Fund, or scholarships for current students who experience a personal change in financial circumstance through the Bridge to the Future Fund.

In addition to scholarship aid, benefactors can support other Marquette priorities found on the giving form, or write in the fund(s) of their choosing. Proceeds support Marquette University, the United Way of Greater Milwaukee, and the United Performing Arts Fund. The goal of the annual Community Campaign is to reach campus-wide participation.


United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County

United Way focuses on the community’s most serious problems through strategic investments in Education, Income and Health. In partnership with more than 160 programs at 80 local agencies, United Way helps hundreds of thousands of people in our community each year.

The reach extends beyond Milwaukee County and its central-city neighborhoods into suburban and rural areas throughout Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha Counties. Investing only in programs that produce measurable results, United Way operates at a high rate of efficiency with 90 cents of every dollar invested into community problem-solving. This year, people in our community will rely on United Way for help. Your donation will ensure that help is there. 

The United Performing Arts Fund
