Communities Honoring a Loved One
To memorialize a loved one, you can establish a named endowed fund to create a scholarship, prize or faculty chair, or to preserve or restore a room or building. The basic plan underlying a named endowed fund is simple. The principal of the fund is never spent. It is invested, either by Marlboro or a trustee chosen by the donor, and the earnings are used to fulfill the purpose or purposes for which the fund was created. Donors may use either outright or deferred gifts to establish named endowed funds. Marlboro works with each donor, on an individual basis, to prepare guidelines for the administration of each named endowed fund. Contact the development office to learn more.
Endowed or not, any gift to any fund may be designated in honor or in memory of a member of the Marlboro College community, or of another person of your choosing.
