Annual Giving

St. Mary's Episcopal Day School annual giving campaign, the Heart of Gold Fund, is an integral supplement to the school's operating budget, allowing the Board and Administration to fund projects that put our "Learn~Love~Lead" motto into action and enrich the lives of the more than 450 students who call St. Mary's their school home.
Through the Pass the Torch Capital Campaign, our Head of School was thrilled to have a clear path to materialize several initiatives that are important to our community, and we are hopeful that this annual giving campaign will bolster those efforts. Funds raised during the 2020-2021 Heart of Gold annual giving campaign may be directed to three areas:
  • Navigating 2020 and Beyond: funding Social Emotional Learning (SEL) initiatives that help students learn how to cope with and navigate the stresses of the current climate; and investing in STEAM to keep our students educated on and at the forefront of the ever-evolving technological landscape.
  • The St. Mary’s Episcopal Day School Endowment
  • Wherever St. Mary’s Needs It Most: funding additional projects that might arise that are not otherwise covered by the annual operating budget. 

During the 2018-2019 school year, nearly $320,000 was raised to support St. Mary's through the Heart of Gold Campaign.

Volunteers

The Heart of Gold 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 Fund 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 Heart of Gold Annual Fund Campaign.
