Moore and other University friends established the SU Foundation in 1973. During his 33 years of service, Moore helped grow the fundraising arm and, with his wife Ruth, supported campus organizations including the May Literacy Lab, Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art and Salisbury Symphony Orchestra. They also contributed to scholarships and the construction of the Alumni House.

“Both Marshall and Ruth would be proud of the hard work and perseverance by these students to finish their higher education,” said Jason Curtin ’98, assistant vice president for development and alumni relations and deputy director of the SU Foundation.  

Since its creation, the SU Foundation has enriched the academic growth and physical expansion of SU through the support of student scholarships, faculty research, new facilities and community outreach.
