Endowment

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

Marymount has several opportunities for special or designated gifts that directly impact the experience of our girls. One of the most critical initiatives is our Named Scholarship Program, which directly supports individual girls throughout their four years at Marymount. In 2014-2015, roughly $1.5 million was awarded in need-based assistance impacting 1 in 4 of our girls.
 
Named Scholarships
Within the framework of the financial aid program there are several established relationships with foundations and individuals who have designated significant gifts to support Named Scholarships. 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.
Why an endowment?
Endowment funds are assets that provide support to the school in perpetuity. The endowment funds are invested, and a portion of the investment return provides support to school operations, including but not limited to; financial aid, faculty professional development, and operating support. Giving to an endowment means that your gift will keep supporting the school and its students in perpetuity – not just this year, but every year into the future.
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.
