Saint Mary’s Catholic School exists to provide an opportunity for children to grow in faith, wisdom and knowledge in a challenging academic environment formed by Catholic tradition. Our talented educators, strong curriculum and nurturing community prepare students who are grounded in God’s values, and who go forth ready for high school.

Gifts to Saint Mary’s help us provide the spaces, materials and experiences that let our students flourish.

Annual Fund

Your gift to Saint Mary’s Catholic School’s Annual Fund lights the way for each student and faculty member at Saint Mary’s, impacting our community, our city and our world.

Saint Mary’s Annual Fund is the sustaining portion of our budget that allows us to do more and be more for the children who attend Saint Mary’s. While the majority of our school’s operating expenses are covered by tuition and with help from the parish, the Annual Fund makes up the portion that is not — ensuring that our students and teachers have the tools and the learning environment they need.

Our Annual Fund for 2019 has goal of $65,000. This amount is built into the operating budget for the 2019-2020 school year.

You can give to the Annual Fund online. Please contact Development Coordinator Jennifer Janus by email at  jjanus@saintmary.org or by phone at (804) 740.1048 with any questions. Thank you!

Give to the Go Forth! Capital Campaign

Saint Mary’s is in the middle of a three-year capital campaign to finance the recent renovation of our elementary wing, entrance, offices, library, technology and arts classrooms. The campaign is supported by gifts and pledges from many members of our community. We are more than 60% toward our goal.

You can give to the Go Forth! Capital Campaign online. Your gift may be made in memory or in honor of someone, or as part of a bequest or trust. Contact Development Coordinator Jennifer Janus at jjanus@saintmary.org or (804) 740.1048 with any questions. Thank you!
