Maret’s Most Ambitious Capital Campaign

The Together We Inspire Campaign ushers in a new era for Maret with two primary funding goals:


Maret's New Athletic Fields Facility

$13 Million

Endowment & Funds for Faculty, Financial Aid, and Special Projects

This campaign will nearly double Maret’s campus facilities and advance our Strategic Directions priorities. This is a transformational moment in the School’s impressive history, and the Together We Inspire Campaign will strengthen Maret’s foundation for enduring success.  We have already received nearly $22M in early gifts and are extraordinarily grateful for the donors who have already invested in this shared vision!


Bird's eye view of multipurpose field and baseball diamond


In partnership with the Episcopal Center for Children in Chevy Chase DC, Maret will lease a parcel of land for 50 years and build a regulation-sized baseball diamond and multipurpose field to accommodate soccer, football, and lacrosse. Maret will have full control of these fields, which support our thriving athletic program.

  • Five-acre addition to Maret’s facilities
  • 50 year-lease and partnership with the Episcopal Center for Children (ECC)
  • Regulation size multipurpose field and baseball diamond 
  • Team house for locker rooms and storage 
  • Less than 3 miles from Maret 
  • A facility serving Maret and the DC Community

A growing endowment powers transformational change and guarantees long-term financial sustainability in an uncertain future. The Campaign will build endowment and restricted funds to:

  • Keep median faculty salaries and benefits at the top quartile of our peer schools to recruit and retain excellent teachers.
  • Maintain financial aid for 25% of our students and continue to build a community that is equitable and inclusive.
  • Endow Maret’s Institutional Research Program to advance academic excellence, responsive curriculum, and students' well-being and success.
  • Endow the Talbott Talent Fund for Faculty and Students as a legacy to the Head of School’s vision to help our community thrive.
