Marquette is Family.

Family, broadly and inclusively defined, is the foundation for individual and community health, well-
being and prosperity. It is those who care about you and want to see you grow and succeed. It
understands each other’s values and concerns. Family accepts you as the person that you are and helps
you to make good decisions. It is who you can laugh, play, pray and learn with, and who you can face
the challenges of life with and share the rewards. Family makes you feel safe and secure. The closeness
is never determined by distance or time.

When people are asked what their association with Marquette has meant or means to them, the answer
is almost always “the feeling of family”.

Families support each other so that together as a whole they can flourish and prosper. As a member of
the Marquette family, your support is needed so we can do just that. Our prosperity relies on prayer
and monetary donations from all of our family. We are asking that you (become or remain) a member
of the Marquette Society with your contribution. Please share what you can. Our promise is to
continue with our mission to cooperate with parents to educate and form joyful disciples of Jesus Christ.

We are family. WE ARE MARQUETTE!

Only with the continuing support of all of our alumni, benefactors and friends including you, is this mission possible.

Please consider making a contribution this year to our Annual Gift Fund.  In exchange for your generous donation, we promise to do all we can to continue to provide a great value-based education to the students who are the future of our world. 

Your assistance and generosity is very much valued and appreciated.  Thank you!

The Marquette Society is an elite group of alumni, alumni parents, grandparents and friends who, along with our Corporate Partners, provide financial support for the advancement of the mission of Marquette Academy High School. The dollars received each year are a major source of income that provides support for the operating budget.

The campaign runs from early autumn to June 30th each year.  Membership in the Society is renewed on an annual basis and new members are always welcome.
