Endowment Giving

Endowment Opportunities at Saint Mary’s

Endowments are an investment in Saint Mary’s High School and provide an important source of income to ensure deserving students have the experience of a Saint Mary’s education for years to come.
Funds are invested and a small portion of the earnings and growth is generated each year to support Saint Mary’s High School. Your endowment gift can be a one-time, one-person agreement or it can be ongoing to which many people contribute.

Saint Mary's High School Endowments

The Father Fallon Endowment was established to secure funds for tuition assistance.
Our Lady, Queen of the Angels Chapel Endowment provides funds to help maintain and enhance the Chapel and spiritual campus monuments such as statues as well as other campus beautification efforts. Funds also offset costs for faculty and students to participate in spiritual formation activities.

Named Gifts can be established with a minimum of $25,000 and designated for a specific purpose as approved by the Saint Mary's High School Foundation Board. Donors have up to five years to reach this minimum, with no less than a $5000 gift to initiate the commitment.

zeiterThis Foundation is so important in helping raise Endowment Funds for tuition assistance in our underserved community.  There are many bright, motivated students in San Joaquin County that would love to attend SMHS if it were not for the cost of a high quality Catholic education.  We have found that many of these families will send their children to SMHS with adequate financial assistance to offset their tuition.  We are very excited to have established the Zeiter Family Fund to aid in tuition assistance for students to attend SMHS.

Note: All endowments are managed and distributed according to the Investment and Spending Policies of the Saint Mary’s High School Foundation while expending only the amount of annual of revenues earned on your donation for its restricted purpose (typically up to 4% annually).
