Why Give

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give,” is a great reminder of the significance of philanthropic support.

Everyone who gives to Marion Military Institute (MMI) can know that the impact of that giving reinforces the wisdom of this famous quote. Every major improvement to our facilities, our cadet support capabilities, and to the overall quality of campus life has been made possible by those who understand the power of giving.

We have achieved significant improvements and enhancements in all these areas the past nine years thanks to our fundraising efforts and to those alumni and supporters who responded to these efforts. Our goal of becoming an indisputable leader development college continues to advance thanks to the combination of hard work by our MMI faculty and staff and the commitment and generosity of people who believe in this mission.

As you consider your annual gift, I invite you to also consider an additional donation to support the Marion Made Capital Campaign. This Campaign is specifically focused on supporting our strategic plan, which envisions MMI becoming The Alabama Military College of Leader Development by improving and enhancing the leadership and character development education already organic to the MMI experience. You can help us achieve this vision by what you give, and what you will get is the satisfaction of knowing you have helped MMI provide cadets the opportunity for an extraordinary life.

Very Respectfully,

David J. Mollahan
