Blue & Gold Fund Reached $4.5 Million In 2014-15
July 20, 2015 Marquette University’s Blue & Gold Athletic Scholarship Fund, which supports student-athlete scholarships, announced a grand total of $4.5 million raised during the 2014-15 fiscal year. :
The Blue & Gold Fund met and passed the annual goal with the support of 4,500 donors. The goal of the Blue & Gold Fund is to fully fund all 136 athletic scholarships (16 NCAA Division I affiliated programs) through annual giving and endowment proceeds. With the help of all of Marquette’s athletics’ donors, the Blue & Gold Fund is striving ever closer to achieving this goal.
“We are so fortunate to have all 4,500 as a part of our Marquette family,” Vice President and Director of Athletics Bill Scholl said. “They have truly been the difference in our student-athletes’ lives and afforded them the opportunity to grow as students and individuals here at Marquette.”
This is the second year in a row that the Blue & Gold Fund raised more than $4 million and the fourth consecutive year that the Blue & Gold Fund has seen an increase in scholarship support.
“The 2014-15 academic year was filled with positive momentum for Marquette University and we want to thank each and every Blue & Gold Fund donor for helping achieve another milestone for scholarship support for Marquette student-athletes, “Associate Athletic Director Joe True said. “Just as each student-athlete plays a role on his/her team, our Blue & Gold donors play a special role in the athletic department as they help provide opportunities for Marquette student-athletes to excel in the classroom, in the community and in their respective sport."
