Nearly one-third of Marin Catholic students qualify for and receive financial aid. Marin Catholic designated over $2 million from a total budget of $17.7 million for the 2019-2020 school year, however, many MC families are in need of more financial assistance than the school is capable of awarding. Marin Catholic is committed to providing additional support by way of those who wish to make a difference.

Gifts of any size help. Supporting scholarships through a multi-year pledge helps meet the needs of a student throughout their time at MC.  Those who would like to make a longer-term impact will hopefully consider starting an endowed scholarship.

Donors who make multi-year scholarship pledges or start an endowed scholarship are connected with a current student if they desire.  Benefactors form relationships with students and families through letters and an annual visit at our Scholarship Dinner.

To help make a Marin Catholic education a reality for a student with financial need, please contact Director of Advancement Jacqueline Tobe at or 415-464-3843.
