Blue & Gold Fund Goals

The primary goal of the Blue & Gold Fund is to fully fund all athletic scholarships at Marquette University.

B&G Online Auction

The year-round online auction features Marquette-specific items and all funds raised go directly to student-athlete scholarship support.

Planned Giving

Many creative planned giving vehicles offer income, estate and gift tax benefits for individuals and families as well as providing future funding for Marquette Athletics. From inclusion in your will or donating life insurance to charitable remainder trusts, every gift is unique and depends upon the tax benefits desired, assets available, and most importantly, the donor's intent.

Marquette Athletics works closely with the university's planned giving department to best serve the donor's vision and needs. Here are some important points to keep in mind:

  • Those who have included Marquette Athletics in estate plans are encouraged to share this information with the university to receive full recognition.
  • Estate plans including Marquette Athletics receive full membership in the university's St. Ignatius Legacy Society as well as departmental recognition.
  • Future endowed athletic scholarships can be established while living through a Testamentary Agreement.
