The Annual Fund supports every facet of Marshall’s mission of academic excellence, character development, global citizenship, and service to society. Unrestricted gifts to Marshall’s Annual Fund are a vital part of the school’s annual operating budget.
frequently asked questions
How much does Marshall expect me to give?
Though it is not required, Marshall encourages families, alumni, faculty, staff, board members, and others in our community to give back to the school by contributing to the Annual Fund. Gifts of any size make a tremendous impact and signify a strong vote of confidence in Marshall's mission.
Why does the school ask for a contribution in addition to my tuition payment?
Annual Fund gifts support the people and programs that make Marshall special. This means talented teachers, small classes, and exceptional academic resources. Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Marshall education, and the school relies on contributions from a variety of donors to support the annual operating budget. Every gift, no matter the size, is important. Gifts to the Annual Fund create an immediate and personal impact on every Marshall student and faculty member.
Why doesn't the school raise tuition rates to cover all operating expenses?
We believe the Hilltopper community is richer if it is more diverse. We value our families from all economic backgrounds and strive to be accessible to a wide range of families. Although tuition is not tax-deductible, a contribution to the Annual Fund may be deducted from your taxes.
