Why Give?

Since the time of its founding, Marlborough School has been able to thrive and excel due to the foresight and philanthropy of supporters who embraced the School’s mission to educate young women.

All gifts to Marlborough—capital, annual, or endowment—serve to advance the education of a talented, spirited, and diverse student body, representative of the cultural, socio-economic, and geographic diversity of Los Angeles. Each and every gift positions the School to invest in the education of young women whose competence, confidence, and intellect will be called upon to make a difference in the world.

You can ensure Marlborough remains one of the finest independent schools in the nation and extend its legacy of achievement to current students through your generous and loyal support.

Like all independent schools, Marlborough School relies on a combination of tuition revenues, endowment funds, and the private support of individuals, including parents, alumnae, friends, corporations and foundations, to meet both annual operating expenses as well as longer term strategic institutional needs.

To preserve Marlborough's preeminence in secondary education for young women, please make a gift, and make an impact.

Q

Why give to the Annual Fund?

Unrestricted annual giving is a high priority for the School. For parents, the Marlborough Annual Fund provides a direct and immediate benefit for their daughters in the current year.
