Michael Gendler and Dr. Priscilla Sands

As we write to you today, the 2018 – 2019 school year is in full swing, and another cohort of vibrant, talented young women are putting their passions and compassion to work at school and around the city.

Each year, we create and share our Report on Philanthropy, which recognizes and celebrates our community’s generosity. Your gift directly supports our students. The considerable return on your investment is visible every day and in every aspect of a Marlborough education. Marlborough graduates will indeed be the leaders of tomorrow.

We also wanted to showcase the school in action and remind you of the many ways your gift makes our program stand out. We hope you will scroll down through some of the highlights of the 2017-2018 school year, during which our innovative and highly motivated students reached new heights in the classroom, on the field, at the podium, and around their city.

It is because of you that these accomplishments are possible. In 2017 – 2018, 100% of employees and Trustees made gifts to the Marlborough Fund, 98% of parents contributed, and alumnae support once again ranked among the top in the nation. In total, you gave over $3 million, making an immediate and significant impact on our students and the school. Each dollar raised helped fund programs, push perspectives, and prepare our young women to lead lives of purpose and meaning beyond their time at Marlborough.

Thank you for your strong commitment to Marlborough and its students. You are integral to the success of the school, and we are so grateful for all that you do in support of our mission.
