The Men's Basketball Excellence Fund, which has provided critical assistance to the program in recent years through support from a core group of valued contributors, is poised to build on the initial success with expanded membership in 2016-17.

The Men's Basketball Excellence Fund is a program that directly supports the needs of the men's basketball program. With an ever-changing competitive landscape in college basketball, Excellence Fund donors assist in providing head coach Steve Wojciechowski and his staff the significant resources necessary for Marquette to achieve national success.

"Our program benefits from the tremendous generosity of our alumni and fans and the excellence fund is a perfect example of that support," Wojciechowski said. "The fund allows us to enrich the experience our players encounter when they become part of the Marquette family and those opportunities play a large role in attracting the nation's best to the University."

Below are a few examples of important initiatives for funding through the Excellence Fund:

  • Supporting leadership development and team building programming
  • Upgrading our analytics and video operations
  • Augmenting travel and recruiting budgets
  • Creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences like foreign trips

Men's Basketball Excellence Fund donors are among a select group of friends of the men's basketball program. To demonstrate appreciation for their investment, Excellence Fund members are invited to exclusive engagement opportunities with the men's basketball program. For questions about the Men's Basketball Excellence Fund, contact the Blue & Gold Fund at 414.288.3988 or blueandgoldfund@marquette.edu.

Proceeds from the Men's Basketball Excellence Fund are managed and dispersed according to all university and NCAA policies under the direction of Vice President & Director of Athletics, Bill Scholl.

"Initiatives like the men's basketball excellence fund are vital to our long-term success and we sincerely appreciate the contributions that have been made to date by our dedicated members," Scholl said. "What's unique about an individual's involvement in this program is the ability to make directly and immediately a significant impact on a student-athlete's experience both on and off the court."
