The true cost of a St. Mary's education is well above the amount of tuition; in fact, the Annual Fund covers 7% of the school's operating budget each year. That means every girl benefits from the Annual Fund, every day. The 2015-2016 Annual Fund raised over $1,000,000.
Our entire community — parents, alumnae, grandparents and friends of the school — understands the vital importance this funding plays in educating our students. Since 2010, parent and alumnae giving has eclipsed national benchmark participation percentages:
PARENT PARTICIPATION: 90%
ALUMNAE PARTICIPATION: 50%
