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 fundraising activities. The Annual Fund and the Gala are the primary sources of these dollars. In 2016–2017, more than $625,000 was raised to help families afford a Marburn education, as well as funding operational expenses not covered by tuition revenue.

Please join us for the 36th Annual Gala on Saturday, April 28, 2018, honoring Robert H. Schottenstein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of M/I Homes, Inc. This year the event will be in the space that tells our story best: our new home. This lively event will celebrate the Marburn mission and invite our family of supporters to raise essential funds towards need-based student scholarships.

Thank you to our sponsors!
