Feb 23, 2022

MARION — Tabor Academy will make a $150,000 donation to the Town of Marion over a three-year period, Tabor Academy Head of School Tony Jaccaci announced Wednesday, Feb. 23.

Starting June 1, 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 through the town fire department, police department or DPW Capital Equipment Budget. 

“We are pleased to support the community in which our school resides,” said Jaccaci, who worked closely with Town Administrator James McGrail 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.” 

McGrail said he is “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.”

The agreement was approved by the Tabor Board of Trustees. 

Tabor Academy has been located in Marion since 1876 and serves both day and boarding students. For more information about Tabor Academy and its relationship with the Town of Marion, contact
