Marin Academy is fortunate to benefit from a longstanding culture of generosity that has enabled MA to become a leader in progressive education. Gifts of time, talent, and financial resources from our community enable the school to provide a truly exceptional educational experience to each and every student, year in and year out. We are so grateful for the generous support of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends who make our work possible.
Marin Academy’s annual and ongoing fundraising initiatives consist of three programs:
The Annual Fund
– The Annual Fund is MA’s largest and most important fundraising priority. Like most independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of an MA education. The Annual Fund is critical to closing this gap, enabling MA to fund every single budget priority. All gifts to the Annual Fund are spent the year they are made, thereby making a direct and immediate impact on all of the people and programs of MA. We ask our entire community to give as generously as they can so that MA can continue to meet our most pressing needs each year.
The Sequoia Circle
– The Sequoia Circle is a group of dedicated and generous community members who have made a long-term commitment to support MA by naming the school as a beneficiary of a planned gift or bequest. This is a wonderful way to plan for your financial future while leaving a legacy that supports experiential, progressive education for generations to come
– MA Celebrates is our annual community event. Held on campus, this special evening under the stars brings our community together to enjoy live music, delicious food and wine, and select silent auction items that benefit student financial aid and faculty professional development
