The Annual Giving Campaign is the foundation of our annual fundraising efforts. Gifts to Annual Giving are a vital source of revenue that reduce our dependence on tuition and provide the resources necessary to fund St. Mary's highest priorities and exemplary programs.
Gifts to the Annual Giving Campaign are disbursed annually to support the operating budget. Tuition fees alone do not cover the full cost of educating a St. Mary’s Episcopal Day School student. The Annual Giving Campaign provides the money to help bridge the gap between tuition income and actual expenses of the school. Additionally, gifts to Annual Giving enable St. Mary’s to more effectively respond to non-budgeted needs or exciting opportunities that may arise during the academic year. For example, during 2007-08 money raised through the Annual Giving Campaign enabled St. Mary’s to outfit every Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade classroom with a SMART Board, significantly impacting our technology use and education. Annual Giving funds also support the Sigety Fund for Professional Development and the St. Mary’s Endowment.
Each year, parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, Trustees and friends show their support of St. Mary’s School through Annual Giving. The impact of your gift, regardless of the size of your gift, is significant. Your gift to the Annual Giving Campaign supports every student every day!
