The Fleur-de-Lis Annual Fund
For over 150 years, St. Mary’s has provided students with a superior Catholic education. To advance our Schools’ mission, every year we invite our entire parish community to support the Fleur-de-Lis Fund — our annual giving program which builds the spirits, mind, and bodies of St. Mary’s students.
The Fund is the primary fundraising priority for St. Mary’s because it provides dependable, recurring, budgeted support for the Schools’ highest priorities and greatest opportunities.
In the 2010-2011 school year, tuition will fund only 90% of our schools’ operating budget. Every family—even those who do not receive financial assistance—will benefit from gifts to the Fleur-de-Lis Fund. It takes the financial support of the entire Saint Mary's community to bridge the gap.
When considering a gift, please think about the following…
One student, educated in the St. Mary’s School Catholic traditions, can positively affect the lives of thousands.
Unrestricted gifts allow St. Mary’s to direct the resources to our areas of greatest need.
Giving to St. Mary’s is a personal experience, one in which you can direct your funds to the area that is most special to you.
If you choose to make a restricted gift, you may direct your gift to any one of our funding priorities: academics, athletics, technology, fine arts, campus ministry, and/or tuition assistance in either the Elementary or the High School.
