Marymount Fund –Support the Greatest Need
Gifts to the annual fund are essential to fuel the progress of Marymount. They provide a way to meet immediate needs for students and faculty. Each year, hundreds of alumni and friends make gifts ranging from $10 to $10,000 or more. Together they have tremendous impact. By establishing a personal tradition of annual giving, you not only directly support our students and faculty, but also help Marymount rise in ranking furthering the value of a Marymount degree. If you are an alumna or alumnus, your gift counts –no matter the size!
Giving to a school, department or program
Some alumni and friends of Marymount prefer to provide support to a particular area of the University. To donate to a specific academic unit, athletics, or other – simply visit our secure online giving page, select “Designated Gift” then type in the Comments box where you would like your gift to be allocated.
Endowed giving–Ensuring Your Values in the Future
Endowed gifts provide stability in perpetuity and demonstrates your commitment to Marymount University.
An endowment gift is a donation that is given with the intent to preserve the original value of the gift, and to grow it over time. The funds are held in perpetuity and invested, and the accumulated appreciation and income on the investment is used to fund an annual distribution. The annual distribution is spent according to the donor’s wishes. Through this dedicated stream of income, an endowment gift ensures the stability of a scholarship, professorship, program, or other purpose.
To design the most meaningful endowment gift to meet your goals, please contact us at (703) 284-1647.
