Support of Marianapolis is an investment in the school’s mission. Alumni, parents (past and present) and friends are key stakeholders in the Marianapolis community.  

Gifts to Marianapolis enable everyone to give what they can each year knowing that they are joining hundreds of fellow donors in having a powerful, collective impact on the student experience.  Our current and future strength depend on your generous support. There are a number of ways to contribute; please consider making a gift today.

You can direct your gift to one of the following areas:

Marianapolis Fund

Marianapolis Fund LogoIn the classrooms, the studios, and the playing fields, the Marianapolis Fund enriches all areas of school life, ensuring the ability to maintain a community-based campus, dynamic programming, and innovative curriculums that make an MPrep experience unique.

Tuition alone does not meet the full cost of each student’s education. The contributions from Marianapolis parents, trustees, alumni and other friends of the school support the current year’s operating budget and impacts virtually every part of the school. In part, MFund contributions help Marianapolis:

  • Enhance the breadth and depth of the curriculum
  • Attract and retain the best faculty and students
  • Maintain a safe and beautiful campus

The Marian’s recent, generous gift of the monastery, old gymnasium, carriage house and office building in the southwest corner of the campus will provide the School with the space to expand its comprehensive educational programs. The property has been carefully maintained, but there is still work to be done to completely transform and re-purpose the buildings so the students can receive the greatest benefits.

Similarly, the recent construction of the Gustavson Track & Field has ushered in a new era for our Athletics program. However, funding enhancements, such as a permanent scoreboard and the construction of an athletic equipment shed, will help to complete the project, and is another goal for the Marianapolis Fund this year.

We hope you will make a contribution to help support these and other important improvements this year.
