Saint Mary’s School deeply appreciates and depends on private donations to provide the excellence that makes its programs distinctive and helps girls find the courage to achieve more than they thought possible.
Tuition alone does not support the annual cost of education; it covers only 70 percent of what is required to give girls the opportunities they need to learn, grow, and thrive. Annual Fund gifts, endowment income, and various other sources fund the balance of the operating budget.
Understanding the urgency and necessity to support the school, many parents, alumnae, and friends, choose to answer the call with generous gifts. Gifts to the Saint Mary’s Annual Fund help to balance the budget and allow the school to meet short-term, annual needs. Planned gifts are also a source of support for the school and offer donors many options to help meet personal philanthropic goals.
