Donors can make gifts to a number of programs at Marian, including the Marian Fund, Endowment Fund, and our Wish List. Together, these gifts constitute a crucial source of support, providing the resources to award tuition assistance, fund academic and student programming, nurture our Catholic mission, operate our large physical plant, and see us into the future.

List of 4 items.

  • Marian Fund

    A gift to this annual fundraising effort makes a profound and immediate impact on today’s Marian students.
    Why Marian Fund dollars are so important 
    The Marian Fund helps provide the critical dollars used for the Leadership Grant that each student receives.  Leadership Grants, which cover the $2,200 difference between the tuition charged and the actual cost of educating a Marian student, are provided to all students in accordance with Marian’s mission to serve as many families as possible.

    Marian Fund dollars are used in many ways:
    • To help provide tuition assistance to students.
    • To support technology upgrades, both in and out of the classroom.
    • To enrich our superior academic, spiritual, and leadership programs.
    • To maintain the facility and campus grounds.
    • To provide overall support of our operating budget.
    Each year Marian asks our alumnae, parents, faculty/staff, and friends to invest in our mission by making a gift to the Marian Fund.  Our goal for the 2017-2018 school year is $400,000 in unrestricted funds.
  • Endowment Fund

    Marian’s Endowment Fund ensures the school’s future. Money in this fund is invested; interest gained can be used to provide permanent financial support for tuition assistance and scholarships, faculty enrichment, and other student programs.

    Traditionally, gifts made through Marian’s Memorial and Honorarium Program in memory of a loved one or in honor of an individual’s birthday, graduation, anniversary, or other special occasion have been invested in the school’s Endowment Fund.  Estate gifts also grow the Endowment Fund.

    In addition, Marian has several endowed scholarships.
