Annual Gala

When the school was chartered in 1981, Marburn Academy’s Board of Trustees established philanthropy as a key to the school’s success.

Each year more than 50% of Marburn families receive need-based tuition assistance provided by our fundraising activities. The Annual Fund and the Gala are the primary source of these funds. In 2015–2016, more than $445,000 was raised to help families to afford a Marburn education and to help to offset operational expenses not covered by tuition revenue, such as faculty and staff professional development and technology upgrades. Usually held in April, the annual Gala raised more than $290,000 this year.

Marburn’s fiscal year runs from July 1 – June 30. All donations to the school are deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please contact Patricia Wallendjack, Director of Institutional Advancement, at or 614.396.4877 with questions.
