Other Campaigns & Special Gifts

This school year, Marymount awarded $2.1 million in need-based assistance
to 1 in 4 of our girls.


Marymount’s Endowment is critical in securing the school’s long-term financial stability. The endowment supports current priorities through ongoing annual interest generated by the fund.  Gifts to the endowment directly support financial aid, faculty and staff professional development and general operating expenses.

Special Funds & Named Scholarships

Marymount has several opportunities for special or designated gifts that directly impact the experience of our girls. One of the most critical initiatives is the Named Scholarship Program, which directly supports individual girls throughout their four years at Marymount.

The Named Scholars Program
enables Marymount to assure families that a scholarship designation will remain with a student throughout her years at Marymount, provided her financial need remains, and that she upholds the general criteria established for her designated scholarship award.

All gifts to Marymount may be made in honor or memory of a beloved family member or friend.

Named Scholars can be established with the following gift levels:


  • $250,000: Establishment of a Named Scholar Endowment that will serve students in perpetuity, each one from her freshman through senior year.
  • $100,000: Commitment of $25,000 annually for four years to provide assistance to one student from her freshman through senior year.
To make a gift to Marymount's Endowment Fund, please contact Rachel Grella-Harding at [email protected] or call 310.472.1205 x 213.
