Thank you for considering a gift to Old St. Mary's School!
Old St. Mary's School is funded three ways: Tuition, Fundraising/Donations, and the Annual Fund.
The Annual Fund is one of three revenue sources for our school in addition to tuition and fundraising. The Annual Fund is dedicated to funding strategic priorities as identified by the School Board, and approved by Old St. Mary’s Parish Pastor and Old St. Mary’s School Principal.
Old St. Mary’s 2021-2022 Blue Ribbon Fund
The vision for the Blue Ribbon Fund is to support and empower exemplary teaching and learning at Old St. Mary’s (OSM). In its third year, the fund continues to support OSM’s strategic priorities as designated by the OSM School Board Financial Development committee and approved by the Old St. Mary’s Parish Pastor and Old St. Mary’s School Principal. All donations to the Annual Fund are tax deductible, to the extent allowed by law.
The 2021-2022 fundraising goal is $275,000 and will support two strategic priorities that are not fully covered by our tuition dollars to:
support our teachers through activities to reward their personal commitment and professional development
support our families via tuition assistance
For details about these priorities, FAQs, and information about how to donate, please review our Blue Ribbon Fund Information Sheet.
