Building Maret's Future Today

A growing endowment powers transformational change and guarantees long-term financial sustainability in an uncertain future. During Maret’s Centennial in 2011, through our Second Century Campaign, we doubled our endowment from $12.5 million to $25 million. Today, thanks to sound investment management and many generous donors, our endowment now exceeds $35 million.
