4th Annual MA Giving Day

On May 14, our community will come together (virtually) for our fourth annual MA Giving Day.

This year, we are asking everyone in our community to direct your Annual Fund gift on Giving Day toward Tuition Assistance. In these current circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and shelter-in-place, this will have the greatest possible impact on our community, now and in the future.
YOU - alumni, parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, and students – are encouraged to make your gift on May 14th and share your reason why on social media, email, and even text. Help us spread the word on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and beyond!
We need your help to reach our goal of 300 gifts in 24 hours. Together, we can do this!!!
In honor of our fourth year, here are four reasons why YOU make all the difference:
  1. Every gift counts. Contributions of all sizes fund a life-changing education.
  2. MA’s community is at the core of what makes it a special place. It is YOUR support that provides increased opportunities for MA’s students.
  3. MA wouldn’t be MA without YOU. You help shape the school and its successes through your support and by sharing with your friends.
  4. YOU can pay tribute to a specific person or program that impacted you. Just enter any desired tribute information when you make your gift.

Join in and show your support for #OneDayOneMA!


What is Giving Day?

MA’s Giving Day is 24 hours devoted to raising support for MA each year. On May 14, 2020, we hope to inspire at least 300 people from our community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends to make philanthropic gifts to MA’s Annual Fund directed toward tuition assistance so as to make the greatest possible impact on our community at this time. We’ll share four fun videos and other great content by email and social media. We also hope to hear from you about your reasons for supporting MA, and invite you to share your MA stories via social media (you can email us, too!).

Where does my gift go?

Gifts made on Giving Day will benefit all of the people and programs that make MA so special via the Annual Fund. This year, we are asking that all gifts be directed toward tuition assistance to make the greatest possible impact during the current health and financial challenges. You can also 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 14, 2020 will count toward Giving Day. You can make your gift online or over the phone by calling (415) 482-3246. If you would like to mail in a check before May 14 to be counted toward Giving Day, it must be received no later than May 14 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. To make a gift of securities to be counted toward Giving Day, please email Teal Conroy at tconroy@ma.org.

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 300 gifts.

How can I make my gift?

You can contribute online or call (415) 482-3246. You can also visit our Ways To Give page for more information about the different types of gifts accepted by MA.

Who can I contact about Giving Day?

You can call MA’s Advancement Office at (415) 482-3246 or email kkennedy@ma.org.

How can I help make MA’s Giving Day a success?

Make your gift, and spread the word! Tell your fellow classmates, parents, family, and MA friends that you’ve made a contribution and encourage them to join you in supporting MA. Share your enthusiasm on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #OneDayOneMA. Send an email or pick up the phone. Anything you do to help spread the word will make a big difference in helping us reach our goal of 300 gifts – and, in turn, will magnify the impact of your gift.
