John Marque: A Legacy of Generosity

John Marque

Nearly a decade after passing away, secret millionaire John Marque still supports the causes he loved with a fund he named in honor of his parents, the Theresa Bittenbring Marque and John Henry Marque Fund.

Because Marque chose to endow his $20 million legacy at the Greater New Orleans Foundation in 2008, over $7 million has been awarded to various nonprofit organizations. Thanks to GNOF’s investment strategy, gifts from the Marque Fund continue in perpetuity.

Want to design your own personalized giving plan? GNOF is here to help support your current philanthropic giving or help you to design your legacy.

– Blathrae Gillin, Greater New Orleans Foundation
