What is the Annual Fund?

Maranatha trusts the Lord to provide through our faithful friends’ giving to the Annual Fund, helping support student scholarship programs. Our desire is to see many more servants leave our campus to fulfill their gospel mission in full-time service and other vocations. Deserving, dedicated students are eligible for institutional scholarships, but Maranatha must raise a significant amount this year to help fund those vital scholarship programs. We cannot do this alone; we covet your prayers and support.

Will my gift make a difference?

Yes! Many students are struggling to afford the cost of college education. Without scholarships, the opportunity for a life changing experience of learning and growing at Maranatha would be lost. Click here to read stories of students who received scholarships that made a difference.
