The Blue & Gold Athletic Scholarship Fund, which directly supports athletic scholarships at Marquette University, has announced the start of the second annual Holiday Blitz. The Blue & Gold Fund Holiday Blitz is a month-long effort to increase the number of scholarships the Blue & Gold Fund can provide Marquette student-athletes.

Last December, Marquette fans made a huge impact on student-athletes by donating more than $200,000 in scholarship support during the first annual Blue & Gold Fund Holiday Blitz.

“Thank you to all of our donors for stepping up to support our student-athletes last year during the inaugural Blue & Gold Fund Holiday Blitz,” said Joe True, Associate Athletic Director for Development. “We are confident that our loyal supporters will step up again this year and help us reach our goal”.

This year, the Blue & Gold Fund has set a goal of $250,000. All gifts made to the Blue & Gold Fund in the month of December will be credited in support of the Holiday Blitz.

The ultimate goal of the Blue & Gold Fund is to fully fund all of the 135 athletic scholarships (16 NCAA Division I affiliated programs) through annual support or endowment proceeds. Scholarship support is imperative as each of Marquette’s programs continue to strive for excellence in competition, the classroom and the community.
