Welcome to Marquette MARDI GRAS!

Making A Real Difference In the Gulf Region and Areas Surrounding

New Orleans

MARDI GRAS was founded in 2006 by a group of students who had been “displaced” from the University of Loyola New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina. In our short history, we have brought over 1,500 students to the Gulf Region to assist in relief work.

New York

Almost 10 years after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, MARDI GRAS has worked to expand to New York in reaction to Hurricane Sandy that hit the East Coast in 2012.

MARDI GRAS promotes participation in active discussions about social justice issues that affect our home in Milwaukee. Partnering with Project Homeless Connect, MARDI GRAS volunteers in various destinations throughout Milwaukee. Our goal as an organization is to bring the experiences of our travels back and best serve our Milwaukee community.
