There are many ways to support Marian, and they include the following.

Make a Gift

Giving Opportunities

The Marian Fund

Marian's annual fund, the Marian Fund, is the largest fundraiser for the school representing 47% of all donated funds. Our founders, the Servants of Mary, wanted Marian to be accessible to every girl. Keeping tuition affordable has been central to the school’s mission for more than 65 years. After tuition, the Marian Fund is the largest fundraiser for the school
representing 47% of all donated funds. 

In addition to offering tuition assistance for those needing financial aid, we also recognize families deal with unforeseen
financial hardship. Because of you and your support, we can work with families on an individual basis.

Join a community of alumnae, parents of alumnae, grandparents, current parents and friends who support the future of Marian. To learn more about the Marian Fund, click here.

Planned Giving

Planned or deferred gifts are designed to help donors enhance their estate planning, tax planning, investment objectives and retirement needs while help ensure the future growth of Marian. All gifts to Marian enable the school to provide much-needed scholarships and financial aid and to furnish support for faculty enrichment. Contact Vice President for Advancement Bonnie Kruse at to learn more about Planned Giving.


Creating a named scholarship program provides an opportunity for benefactors to give the gift of a Marian education to future generations. Donors are able to honor and recognize significant individuals, such as alumni, faculty, or family by creating an endowment whose earnings will provide financial aid to Marian students. For more information on creating a scholarship, click here.


Gifts of time and talent are an essential service to Marian. There are many ways to volunteer - serve lunch, work the concession stand, serve on a FEST committee and staff the BLUEtique. Click here to learn more about volunteer opportunities at Marian.
