Please scroll down to learn more about these endowments.


Endowed Fund for Tuition Assistance
The long-term financial stability of Marin Catholic is dependent upon the growth of its endowment.  Earned interest from the principal of this permanently endowed fund ensures tuition costs remain affordable and provides direct relief to families in need of tuition assistance.

In 2011, President Tim Navone renamed the St. John Neumann Endowment to the Bishop Thomas A. Daly Scholarship Endowment, honoring the former President’s desire to make Marin Catholic education affordable to all who seek it.  

President Navone has focused on increasing the endowment to help alleviate the annual burden of an ever-increasing financial gap. Through fundraising, market growth, and sound fiscal stewardship, the Marin Catholic Endowment has grown from $1 million to $13 million as of 2024.

Tom Lippi Fund for the Future Endowment

Endowed fund for Teacher Recruitment and Professional Development
To ensure that Tom Lippi's vision and passion endure now that he is retired (2018), members of the Marin Catholic Board of Regents established the school's first permanently endowed fund for Teacher Recruitment and Professional Development. This fund is used for recruiting high-quality educators and for an expanding professional development budget for all Faculty. 

Marin Catholic Scholarships

All award decisions are made based on the information provided in the TADS application process and on financial need. Most tuition assistance awards are funded by Marin Catholic's operating fund. In addition, there are Named Scholarship Awards, funded by generous donors, which are also awarded based on this same application process.
