Although all independent schools must raise tuition every year to offset inflation and generate growth, tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of a child's education. The Annual Fund helps to bridge this gap, enabling us to maintain a high standard of academic excellence. It helps our school operate at its best by providing crucial funds that supplement our operating budget and directly benefit our students and teachers.
Marymount seeks high participation from parents, alumni, and faculty in our Annual Fund. Every gift makes a difference and makes a Marymount education accessible to as many talented students as possible. The Annual Fund directly supports curriculum enhancements and educational resources, and donors are welcome to specify the areas of curriculum they wish to support. Your Annual Fund donations are applied immediately and directly to the area of the curriculum you would like or, to the current project.
You can give to Technology, Fine Arts, Music, Library, Sports, Religious Education, Learning Support Services, or General Classroom Support. In addition, Marymount maintains an ongoing Heritage Fund Project which includes the construction of a gallery of photos throughout the school, a video that captures our history with testimonials, and a Donor Wall where our donors can be honored in the sunken garden.
Ways to Give
Corporate Gifts: Individual giving can be complemented by corporate gifts.
Many companies will match gifts made by parents, alumni or even retirees. Corporations and foundations base their decisions in part on demonstrated support within the school community itself. Please ask your employer if they offer a matching gift program. If they do, please contact us for more information.
Planned gifts, such as bequests or charitable trusts, can be an advantageous way to provide a future gift to our school. By making a planned gift, you can make a significant contribution and gain financial and tax benefits for you and your family.
