Fund-a-Need is an essential annual Marshall tradition! Each year, this special event of financial support brings the entire Hilltopper community together to help address a specific need in our school. Because of past success, we have been able to introduce new programs, facilities, technology, and other improvements that further build and celebrate some of the most compelling and hopeful aspects of the Marshall experience.
Fund-a-Need is celebrated at Marshall’s annual auction. This year it will take place on Saturday, March 18th at Clyde Iron Works. Tickets are available at marshallschool.org/galaxy-gala. Fund-a-Need gifts can be made during the event, or if you wish to make your gift in advance, please complete the form below.
Physical education and athletics play an important role in the Marshall School experience by not only contributing to health and wellness, but also improving the social and emotional wellbeing of our students. Opportunities for movement and play correlate to improved concentration and focus, higher intellectual retention, and the formation of positive habits that last a lifetime. In every gym class and on every team, our students learn lifelong skills of teamwork, discipline, perseverance, positive attitudes, and sportsmanship. Our school gym is a place where sports are played, energy flows, fans cheer, parents support, community is built, friendships are formed, and memories are made. It is a place that generates a passion, excitement, and healthy lifestyle that echoes throughout our building and Hilltopper community.
We are excited to announce that the 2023 Fund-a-Need will support much needed improvements to Marshall's gym that will enhance the experience of every person who walks through our front entrance. The gym is one of the last curriculum-based spaces in the school to be renovated in recent years, and updates are required to make it functional, welcoming, and safer for all students and athletes. We look forward to repainting the floor for the first time in over 20 years to replace the fading lines and outdated branding with a reinvigorated Marshall spirit. Additionally, we want to add padding to the walls to shield our students from injury, and replace the gym's original 60-year-old doors to maximize the protection and security of our students, faculty, and visitors.
We are thrilled to share this project with you, and invite you to join us in rallying around this impactful upgrade!
