Simply put, the Marquis Society has the power to change lives.
Each year, Marquis Society members make a significant impact at Lafayette by enhancing all areas of the student experience. In fact, last fiscal year more than 2,100 Marquis Society members contributed more than $18 million to support financial aid, programs, facilities, and more, which represents more than 60% of all giving to the College. As you can see, Marquis Society members are part of a supportive network that positively impacts all students. The College counts on annual Marquis Society giving to continuously enhance the College. In fact, more than 56% of Marquis Society members have been consistent members for 10 consecutive years. View the current list of Marquis Society members as listed in the annual Summary of Giving including 25+ year donors and new sustaining members, which include members of the Marquis Society for 10 or more consecutive years.
For young alumni within ten years of graduation, Marquis Society membership may be obtained with a gift of $100 multiplied by the number of years since graduation. If your company offers a matching gift program, you may use that option to achieve Marquis Society status. Check online to see if your company participates in the program, or call (610) 330-5046 for assistance. You may send your form in with your gift, or you can send it after your gift has been made.
