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 2020-2021 Blue Ribbon Annual Fund 

OSM’s 2020-2021 Blue Ribbon Annual Fund donations will support two strategic priorities that
are not covered by our tuition dollars: (1) supporting the livelihood of our teachers and (2)
supporting our families via tuition assistance. These priorities remind us that during these
challenging times, we are all in this together.


For details about these priorities, FAQs, and
information about how to donate, please review our 2020-2021 Blue Ribbon Annual Fund
Information Sheet.
