The SMS Annual Fund Program supports  the day-to-day operating cost of running our school that tuition and parish subsidy cannot cover. Tuition alone only provides for 60% of the operating budget. Parish subsidy, state reimbursement, interest income and the annual fund make up the remaining 40%. The Annual Fund helps to bridge this gap not covered by tuition and allows us to:

  • expand services and opportunities for our students
  • continue and improve our highly recognized academic programs
  • help to retain our outstanding and dedicated faculty
  • build a reserve for special projects

Every contribution, whatever its size, plays an important role in keeping St. Mary School one of the top Catholic grade school in our city. The success of the Annual Fund depends on the involvement of the entire SMS family. Annual Fund gifts are generally unrestricted and used to meet the most pressing needs of the school.
