Horizon Fund
Our Annual Giving Campaign

Marin Horizon School students are engaged, independent thinkers who have a true sense of their place in the world, take responsibility for their actions, and care deeply about how they affect their environment and the people around them. Our students are lifelong learners with a passion for the pursuit of knowledge. At Marin Horizon, we make a difference in children’s lives so they can make a difference in their world.

Each year, the Horizon Fund is the school’s fundraising priority. Because tuition only covers part of the cost of the exceptional education offered at Marin Horizon School, we rely on our community to help bridge the difference between tuition income and the true cost of educating each student. Gifts to the Horizon Fund support the current year’s operating budget and go to work immediately in support of competitive teacher salaries and benefits, technology upgrades, field trips, Outdoor Education, art, music, drama, athletics, tuition assistance, and much more.

Typically, the Horizon Fund launches in the fall, with all pledges due by December 31. (Pledges may be fulfilled through June 15.) All gifts, no matter the size, are important and make a difference; our primary goal is 100% participation.

Planned Giving

There are many ways to support Marin Horizon School, ways in which the school, you and your loved ones all benefit at the same time. Such giving techniques are called "planned gifts", because with thoughtful planning, you create win-win solutions for you and Marin Horizon.
