Maranatha High School has been blessed with support from many individuals, including parents, alumni, grandparents, staff, and others. In an effort to provide recognition and gratitude to those whose annual support is extraordinary,
Maranatha has established the following Giving Societies:

List of 3 items.

  • The Minutemen Circle

    Those making an annual gift of $2,500 or more receive recognition in publications and an invitation to a special reception with school leadership.
  • Head of School Circle

    Donors who make an annual donation of $7,500 or more receive recognition in publications and are invited to a special dinner hosted by the Head of School.
  • The Maranatha Legacy Society

    The Maranatha Legacy Society was established to recognize individuals who have made a commitment to Maranatha High School in their estate plan. The Maranatha Legacy Society provides individuals with an opportunity to acknowledge the value and impact the school has had on their lives, while helping to ensure Maranatha continues to impact students for years to come.
    Estate gifts of all sizes are gratefully accepted. Membership in the Maranatha Legacy Society not only blesses the school and the donor, but also provides an opportunity for fellowship. Each year members are invited to a special Legacy Society reception, in addition to other events.
    Planned Giving Opportunities:
    There are a variety of ways you can include Maranatha High School in your will or estate plan.  Please know that our staff are available to work with you to customize your gift so that it can best meet your estate planning needs. Alternatively, you may wish to consider one of the following:
    • A Bequest in a Will:  Make a provision in your will, designating a specific gift or a percentage of your estate. The most common gifts are cash, securities or real property.
    • Life Income Gifts: A charitable gift annuity, a charitable remainder trust, or a pooled income fund, all provide income to you or your beneficiary during your life. These types of gifts usually reduce or eliminate certain types of taxes, and provide a guaranteed income during your life. Following your passing, Maranatha receives the gift.
    • Life Insurance or Retirement Plan: Maranatha High School can be made the beneficiary of your life insurance policy or retirement benefits/IRA.
    • A Life Estate: With this gift, you deed your property to Maranatha High School, but continue to occupy the property for the remainder of your life. A life estate may provide an income tax deduction, and reduces capital gains and estate taxes.
    Designating your Gift:
    You may designate your estate gift to benefit any area you choose at Maranatha High School (e.g. tuition assistance, athletics, visual and performing arts, academics, facilities, technology etc.). You can create a named endowment fund with a minimum estate gift of $25,000.
