Why Build Endowment Funds?  

A well funded endowment is the goal of most nonprofit organizations. An endowment is a fund established in perpetuity, with a portion of the income from the fund used each year to support a designated purpose. An endowment provides a lasting legacy of a donor’s generosity and reflects the donor’s intentions and wishes. A donor can be assured that the organization will honor his/her original intent when the income is disbursed each year.

Currently, Maranatha has two existing endowment funds. 

The Jack Green Tuition Assistance Endowment was established in honor of former principal Jack Green. Contributions to to the Jack Green Endowment allow this fund to continue to grow to give deserving students the opportunities that Maranatha has to offer. 

The Roxanne Cook Tuition Assistance Endowment was established in 2009 by the Cook family in honor of their daughter, Roxanne, Class of 2009. This endowment for tuition assistance provides a legacy of generosity at Maranatha by strengthening the school's ability to accept students of all economic and diverse backgrounds. We encourage other families to contribute to this fund so it may continue to grow and provide funds in perpetuity to deserving students. 

Both of these endowment funds were created to support the school’s tuition assistance efforts. As our student population has grown significantly over the last four years, the school has found itself faced with increased requests for tuition assistance. These requests come from families who are the heart and soul of Maranatha, who keep our school economically diverse and rich in spirituality. Building these endowments is an important measure of good stewardship to help ensure that MHS will be able to continue serving a wide variety of families in our community for generations to come.
