What Is the Faculty and Staff Fund? strong>

Why Should I Give to the Faculty and Staff Fund?
- Whatever the reason, and whatever the designation, faculty and staff gifts to the University speak volumes to the rest of the community about Marymount as a place for philanthropic investment.
- Tuition covers only 85% of what it takes to educate our students. That means there is a 15% gap between tuition and fixed costs. Gifts provided by you help to fill this gap.
- Over 85% of Marymount undergraduates receive some form of financial aid.
How Can I Become More Involved?
