Your membership in The President’s Circle is important. President’s Circle Leadership gifts of $1,835 or more account for nearly 80% of the philanthropic support given to The Marietta Fund each year! Your membership in this group creates an integral support system for Marietta’s ongoing pursuit of a distinctive education. Thanks to your generous support, Marietta is able to provide opportunities for students while continuing to increase the value of a Marietta College degree. When you contribute to today’s students, You Are The Marietta Fund!

Although all gifts to Marietta are appreciated and valued, President’s Circle gifts make a significant and immediate impact all over campus. Whether you support the Pioneer Club which helps our team get the equipment they need to take it to the next level or a trip to help the team grow; the Student Aid Fund which makes sure deserving students can attend Marietta, regardless of financial background; or the general Marietta Fund which allows the President to utilize funds for the colleges most pressing issues; you make a difference in the lives of our students.
