Donate to the Annual Fund

annual fund

It has been a very difficult year and many of our Ram families are struggling financially to keep current with their tuition as well as other basic necessities.

The actual yearly tuition cost to educate each student is $14,000. Saint Mary’s charges only $10,500 per student. The $3,500 deficit is funded mostly through the generosity of our donors, alumni and former and current parents. Due to these unprecedented times, because of the challenges presented by COVID-19, your support is needed now more than ever.
Together, we strengthen our children’s spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and social development.
Your Gift to the Annual Fund Today Will:
  • Ensure Saint Mary’s remains affordable for all students
  • Strengthen our Catholic identity by supporting our spiritual programs and activities
  • Provide the highest standards in curriculum development
  • Support campus and classroom improvements and facility maintenance
  • Provide the latest in information technology
As a loyal supporter to the many Saint Mary’s activities and events, we want you to know we appreciate hearing your comments and suggestions and we are listening. Email the Office of Advancement at with any questions you may have.
You make it possible for us to move forward and have a positive impact on the experiences of every student. We are committed to develop the whole person while providing a strong Catholic education.
Whether you are alumni, parent or grandparent, or friend of Saint Mary’s, your gift to the Saint Mary’s Annual Fund is greatly valued and your participation – no matter what the size – will make a real and lasting difference in the lives of our students and the future of our school. The Annual Fund is our chief giving program and by investing in the Saint Mary’s Annual Fund, YOU will:

Actively change lives of today's youth who are facing challenges of a society whose values and morals are changing rapidly and who need more than ever the Christ-centered, well disciplined, college preparatory environment to thrive in.
Help us build leaders of tomorrow who are challenged to grow as the whole person--intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and physically, so that they can be who they are and be that well.
Participate at the center of the great story of our school as we all journey together to our 150th Anniversary in 2026 and a sustainable future. The Annual Fund supports almost every aspect of a Saint Mary’s education. Annual Fund gifts are typically unrestricted so that they can be directed to areas with the greatest need — and have the greatest potential for impact.
Did you know that tuition covers only about 80% of the cost of a Saint Mary’s education? The remaining expenses are covered by fundraising efforts, the largest focus being the Saint Mary’s Annual Fund.
Thank you for your support. We hope you will consider a tax-deductible donation again this year to Saint Mary’s High School’s Annual Fund. We hope we can count on your support.
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or comments. May God keep you in His special care and continue to bless you.
