Endowment and Named Funds

The Tracey Ford “Joyful” Fund

The Tracey Ford “Joyful” Fund is an endowed fund, established by the Maryvale Board of Trustees in May 2023 in honor of Tracey H. Ford, President of Maryvale from 2012-2023.

Income from the Fund will be used for exposure that enriches the student experience and brings joy. Activities could include opportunities to make regular use of the falls, streams, and wooded areas behind the Castle; assemblies that will bring dance, music, theatre, and poetry to life on our stage; enhancements across campus such as outdoor games and equipment, perhaps a bocce ball court or swings; health and wellness initiatives; and community building events and trips.

“Throughout my career, I have never wavered from the belief that schools should be places of joy.  There is a direct correlation between happy students and successful students and at Maryvale I want them to be both.  If the past years, through a pandemic, showed us anything it is that students and teachers crave community.”
