The Foundation raises funds from the local community and welcomes donations of any kind. The primary fund raising events include:
Annual Pledge Drive
The Annual Pledge Drive is officially kicked off at the end of summer as we head into the new school year. It is a straightforward request for funds to be pledged and continues during the spring/summer/fall transitions between the school year. Donation envelopes are available at the school office.
Fall Fundraiser Event
This is the premier fundraising event for the Foundation and includes food, music and silent auction. This event generates about 50% of the annual funds raised.
This event is a community social event and student art auction generating about 30-40% of annual funds.
Fourth of July at Mariners Park
This extremely popular event is in conjunction with the City of Newport Beach. The day begins with a bicycle parade down Mariners Drive followed by games and activities at Mariners Park. This event generates about 10% of annual funds.
Ralphs Community Contribution Program
This program is the easiest way to help Mariners School. Simply register your Ralphs card with the program and Ralphs contributes a percentage of your purchases back to the foundation. This program generates about 5% of annual funds.
