Frequently Asked Questions

How can I help Marian?

You can support Marian by considering a gift to the Marian Fund, an estate gift, or a gift to a major gifts program. 

What are the differences between the Marian Fund, an estate gift, and a major gifts program?

The Marian Fund helps provide the critical dollars used for the $1,500 Leadership Grant that each student receives.  It  provides overall support of our yearly operating budget, including tuition assistance, technology upgrades, program enrichment, and campus renovations.

An estate gift, often a bequest, a gift of life insurance, or a life income gift, greatly enhances our endowment and helps ensure Marian’s impact for generations to come.

A major gifts program invests in construction, endowment, or other programs to ensure Marian’s growth and advancement.
