Tabor Academy to Donate $150,000 to Town of Marion

Tabor Academy Head of School Tony Jaccaci announced that the Tabor Board of Trustees has approved a proposal to provide financial support to the Town of Marion. Starting June 1, 2022, an annual $50,000 donation will be paid to the Town over the course of three years for a total donation of $150,000. The first payment has been earmarked to support the School Stabilization Fund for use at the Sippican Elementary School. Additional funds may be directed to benefit the Town by way of the Town Fire Department, the Town Police Department, or the Town DPW Capital Equipment Budget.

The Town and the School have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship since its founding in 1876. “We are pleased to support the community in which our school resides,” says Jaccaci, who worked closely with James McGrail, Town Administrator, to complete this agreement. “We look forward to working with the Town of Marion and to seeing how this donation can benefit these vital programs.”

Of the partnership, McGrail states, “We are thrilled with Tabor’s decision to commit to a $150,000 gift to the Town over the next three years.  We engaged in discussions with Tony Jaccaci, since he assumed his duties in July of last year, regarding a number of ways Tabor and the Town could work together to build a stronger partnership. Mr. Jaccaci showed a genuine interest in doing so and this gift is a much-appreciated step.”
