Maret’s Most Ambitious Capital Campaign

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

$12 MILLION

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!


CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES

A FIELD OF OUR OWN

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

BUILDING MARET'S FUTURE TODAY

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.
