Ways to Give

List of 8 items.

  • Annual Fund

    Each year, MA relies upon unrestricted Annual Fund contributions to provide educational resources and experiences for our students that wouldn’t be possible through tuition alone. You can invest in this important effort through gifts of cash, check, credit card (through the mail or online), and securities. Many companies offer matching gift programs, which increases the impact of your support exponentially.
  • Endowment Gifts

    Marin Academy welcomes gifts to its endowment fund. Unrestricted gifts to the general endowment are particularly valuable since they give MA the flexibility to allocate funds where and when they are most needed. Previous contributions to the endowment campaign have allowed MA to create special funds for faculty development, student scholarships, and community outreach. Marin Academy welcomes new gifts to existing funds as well as new endowment funds initiated by the donor.
  • Honor and Memorial Gifts

    Gifts made in honor or in memory of an individual or group are gratefully accepted by Marin Academy. These gifts are recognized in the donor listing of the Annual Report of the Nexus Magazine. If requested, we will happily notify the designated recipients of tribute gifts.
  • Bequests in Your Will

    Planned gifts are often thought of as "leaving a legacy" that benefits future generations at Marin Academy. Planned gifts include gifts of cash, securities, or property provided in the donor's will. A planned gift enables you to make a positive financial difference for you and your family, while also making an important gift to Marin Academy. You can reduce the amount of your estate that is subject to tax. For information on planned giving, please contact Meg Wilson.
  • Designated Beneficiary of Retirement Plans

    Significant savings of both income and estate taxes can be achieved by naming Marin Academy as a beneficiary of your IRA, Keogh, or 401(k) retirement plan.
  • Other Deferred Gifts

    It is possible to make gifts of property that may allow tax benefits for the donor during his or her lifetime, may be used during the lifetime of the donor, and which would revert to Marin Academy, with possible estate savings.
  • Stock Transfer Instructions

    Please contact your broker with transfer instructions and notify Teal Conroy that a stock transfer will be made. You will receive acknowledgement and receipt by mail from MA. If the stock is in a brokerage or bank trust account, instruct your broker/banker to transfer the gifted stock to Marin Academy's account at First Republic Securities with the following information:
