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.  ​

Annual Fund

Old St. Mary’s 2022-2023 Blue Ribbon Fund 

The vision for the Blue Ribbon Fund remains the same, to support and empower exemplary teaching and learning at Old St. Mary’s. The fund continues to support OSM’s strategic priorities as designated by Parish & School Leadership, with support from the Financial Development Committee and School Board.


The 2022-2023 fundraising goal is $200,000 and will support two strategic priorities that are not fully covered by our tuition dollars to:

  1. support our teachers through activities to reward their personal commitment and professional development

  2. support the sustainability and financial vitality of our school


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