List of 5 frequently asked questions.

  • What is Giving Day?

    On May 16, our community will celebrate our second MA Giving Day by raising philanthropic support for the Marin Academy Annual Fund. Parents, alumni, faculty, staff, grandparents and students are encouraged to make gifts on May 16 and share their reasons for supporting MA. Last year, we made school history by surpassing our goal of 100 gifts on our first ever Giving Day. We need the help of our entire community to help us reach our goal of 200 gifts in 24 hours on May 16.
  • Where does my gift go?

    Gifts made on Giving Day will be directed toward MA’s Annual Fund, which supports all of the people and programs that make MA so special. The Annual Fund impacts everything from our incredible faculty, financial aid and academics to outings, athletics and the arts. You may choose to direct your gift to a specific program touched by the Annual Fund or honor a particular staff, faculty or coach who has made an impact on you or your loved ones. All gifts, regardless of the amount, will make an immediate difference to the entire MA community.
  • How can I make sure that my gift is counted towards Giving Day?

    All gifts made on May 16, 2018 will count toward Giving Day. You can make your gift online by clicking here, or over the phone by calling (415) 482-3333. If you would like to mail in a check before May 16 to be counted toward Giving Day, it must be received no later than May 15 and you must write “Giving Day” in the memo section. Mail checks to Marin Academy, c/o Advancement Office, 1600 Mission Ave, San Rafael, CA 94901.
     
    If you have already supported the Annual Fund this year, THANK YOU! We encourage you to consider an additional nominal gift on Giving Day, as only contributions made on this day count toward our goal of 200 gifts. Your additional support will help us unlock a generous challenge grant of $40,000 from members of our Board of Trustees.
