Where does the money go?
All gifts made to the Class of 2013 Senior Class Gift Campaign will go to the Marist Fund, which is the annual campaign that raises unrestricted funds for the College. Annual gifts to the Marist Fund provide current Marist students like us the most critical educational resources and opportunities such as abroad programs, exciting internships, advanced technologies, student activities, scholarships, support services and much more.
Did you participate in a study abroad program? Gain knowledge from a valuable internship opportunity? Use support services on campus? Use the computer labs or library resources? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you benefited from the Marist Fund. Alumni, parents and friends of the college make annual gifts to the Marist Fund so current and future students can receive a top-notch education. Now, it's our turn to say thank you by giving something back.

Your participation, at any giving level, is extremely important. Remember that all gifts - no matter how large or small - are important! By making a gift to the Marist Fund as a senior, your gift will be counted into the college's alumni participation rate which affects Marist's rankings in publications such as US News and World Report and The Princeton Review. You can support the Marist Fund by making your senior class gift at any level that is comfortable for you. Your gift this year will help to increase the alumni participation rate, which in effect increases the value of your degree! Every single gift really does make a difference!

Marist College continues to be recognized as one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review.
