Annual Giving

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!  Please visit  https://forms.diamondmindinc.com/smeds/heartofgold to make an online donation.

We look forward to another successful campaign in 2017-2018!

Volunteers

The Annual Giving Campaign is much more than a fundraising effort. Its impact goes beyond dollars; it allows us to build relationships and create a culture of philanthropy at St. Mary’s School. Each fall, SMEDS parent volunteers conduct the Annual Giving drive. Our volunteers play a vital role in the success of the campaign. We cannot say "Thank You!" enough to these dedicated parents. We invite you to participate in the campaign and help accomplish the mission and objectives of the school.

St. Mary’s gratefully acknowledges our parent volunteers for their valuable assistance with the 2016-2017 Annual Giving Campaign.

Alumni

As an adult member of the St. Mary’s community, think about your experience as a student. Very few of your successes here happened by chance. A great amount of time and care goes into each student's development. The hard work, dedication, and constant communication by our faculty created a reputation for producing successful graduates like you. SMEDS continues to provide the same academic and nurturing environment for our current students and their families. This is what makes St. Mary’s a success.

You have woven together many educational opportunities and experiences to become the person you are today. We hope that in some significant way your experience at SMEDS helped contribute to your success.

Just as you needed St. Mary’s when you were a student, St. Mary’s needs you. Be a part of the school's long-term success. Your gift to the Annual Giving Campaign helps to guarantee the school's future. With your philanthropic gift, you ensure that future generations have the opportunity to learn, discover, dream, and succeed at St. Mary’s Episcopal Day School.
