Philanthropy for Frank Marshall

L.A.’s Promise
Marshall is currently co-chair of the board of directors for L.A.’s Promise, formerly known as MLA Partner Schools.  He’s been on the board since its inception in 2006, and he has also served a term as co-chair of the MLA Board. In 2006, Marshall hosted a career workshop and spoke at Go For College, a prestigious college fair hosted by MLA at Occidental College. He has supported the L.A.’s Promise Gala, the organization’s largest fundraising event, and he’s hosted a power lunch for MLA at The Kennedy/Marshall Company. In 2007, Marshall donated the proceeds from The Bourne Ultimatum Premiere to MLA. The following year, he visited West Adams Prep High School, an MLA Partner School, and introduced MLA staff members to the Thelonious Monk Institute with the hopes of creating a jazz program at the school.

UCLA Foundation Board of Governors
As a graduate of UCLA’s class of ’68, Marshall has a long history of giving back to his alma mater. In 1999, a state-of-the-art soccer and track-and-field facility was added to the Drake Stadium, which was named after Marshall. The cost of the project was $1.5 million and was made possible by a lead gift from Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy. UCLA’s soccer teams now play their home matches in the stadium, complete with new lighting for night games. From 2002 to 2005, Marshall also contributed as a member of UCLA Foundation’s Board of Governors.
