Parent Campaign, 2023-2024

Philanthropy & Parents

There is a long tradition of philanthropy at Saint Mary's, and it is the generosity of our past, present, and future donors that allows our school to thrive as an exemplary all-girls school. Saint Mary's Annual Fund ensures our students receive a personalized educational experience to support them throughout their time at Saint Mary's.

Saint Mary's Annual Fund Parent Campaign raises much-needed funds each school year. Annual Fund donations made by families reflect their belief in and support of the mission of Saint Mary's to educate young women to become informed, resourceful, resilient, bold and extraordinary young women who are ready for college and life. The support provided by families of both current and past students is essential to the continued success of the school and underwrites a notable portion of the operating budget.

Our goal for the 2023-2024 school year is $1.8 million, of which we hope to raise $400,000 from families this year.

Welcome, Saint Mary's Families!

Saint Mary’s Annual Fund supports the highest priority needs throughout the campus and bolsters the people and programs that make Saint Mary’s School unique. This allows us to enroll the best and brightest students while also bringing the finest faculty to 900 Hillsborough Street.

The annual fund ensures that our students receive a personalized all-girls educational experience that cannot be replicated at any other institution. 

Our 23-acre campus is located in vibrant downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, just blocks away from some of the nation’s most forward-thinking companies—many of which offer internships, mentorships, and hands-on learning opportunities for our students.

Saint Mary’s is the fourth eldest all-girls institution in the country, and here our students are challenged to think critically and collaboratively, exercise leadership skills, embrace their independence, and explore their passions to prepare them for college and for life. 

Your gift to Saint Mary’s Annual Fund impacts our students' experience on campus today, which empowers her future tomorrow.
