The St. Mary School Annual Fund is our appeal to help defray costs that tuition alone does not cover. Your gift is unrestricted and supports the general operating budget. The St. Mary School Annual Fund serves as a silent scholarship for every student, keeping tuition lower than the actual cost of a St. Mary’s education and allowing all families to give their children this precious opportunity. With strong conviction in our mission, we invite you to partner with us by participating in this strategic initiative to advance the mission of our school. Your tax-deductible gift will signify your investment in the future of SMS.
