St. Mary's Endowment is a perpetual source of support for the school and its mission of superior education and the development of each individual student's potential.

Comprised of more than 50 funds, the St. Mary’s Endowment provides the capital to support the designated goal of each fund with the majority supporting financial aid and faculty training and professional development opportunities. 

Through sound investment practices that emphasize long-term investment fundamentals, the Endowment, with the approval of the Board of Trustees, is able to provide regular annual distributions to support school operations. These distributions allow St. Mary's to continue to provide excellence in programs, faculty and staff, and facilities that support the school's mission.
