Why Giving Matters

The difference between a good institution and a great one is the support of its alumni, parents and friends. From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed and planned gifts that last for generations, your support helps to ensure a bright future for Marymount and our students. No matter the amount, your gift does make a difference in the following ways:

Strengthens academic programs

Your support enhances the recruitment and retention of quality students, faculty and staff, and improves campus facilities and services.

Helps make Marymount accessible to all

Your support is vital to the success of the more than 88 percent of undergraduates who receive financial aid. Plus, tuition only accounts for 82 percent of the cost of educating a Saint – the rest comes from grants and donors, which provides each full-time undergraduate a “silent scholarship” of $4,000 per year.

Affects Marymount’s national ranking

U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings take into account the alumni giving rate.

Inspires others to give

Your donation is a vote of confidence that shows corporations and foundations that Marymount is supported by its community.

No matter the amount, your gift makes a difference!
