For 182 years,

Saint Mary’s School has been a leader in the education of young women. Now, more than ever, we need your participation in the Annual Fund to ensure Saint Mary’s Forever. Your gift today will count in our Saint Mary’s Forever Campaign and supports the highest areas of need, including financial aid and additional scholarships, exceptional academic programs, improvements in our technology, and the maintenance of our historic campus buildings.

The Saint Mary’s Annual Fund goal for 2023-24 is $1.8 million. It is the largest Annual Fund goal in our history and is imperative to helping us bridge the gap between endowment income, tuition, and other sources of revenue, and the actual cost of our school's total operating expenses each year.

Together, we can ensure our mission for generations of young women to come. Please consider making a three-year commitment today and promise an annual gift each year of the public campaign, through 2026. Your annual gift will make an immediate impact on our students, faculty, staff, and our campus. Give today.

Saint Mary’s has been a leader in the education of girls and young women. For a Saint Mary’s girl, preparing for the future is about learning to lead. That visionary spirit gave birth to the school in 1842 and has sustained us through the generosity of benefactors who believe in our mission. The success of Saint Mary’s Annual Fund depends on gifts above and beyond the average giving level.
