Every student’s curiosity, creativity, and motivation deserves to be explored to its full potential. Your gift to St. Mary’s Academy helps us challenge, support, and expand each student’s vision. It enriches every element of an SMA experience. Most importantly, it offers each student the opportunity to become a Powerful Agent of Change.
Giving opportunities provide a critical asset to the daily life at SMA. Give your support today to improve a SMA student’s experience for a lifetime.
The cornerstone of SMA’s annual fundraising effort is the Annual Fund. Each year the fund is allocated to the greatest areas of need at St. Mary’s Academy. SMA strives for 100% participation from its faculty, staff, Board of Trustees, and parents and 10% participation from its alumnae and grandparents.Donate to the Annual Fund
The Community Center will prove to be the vibrant center of our St. Mary’s Academy campus. It features learning and teaching areas, dedicated spaces for Junior Kindergarten through Grade 8 activities, and vital music and drama classrooms for the lower, middle and high school students, plus a lunch room with world-class views! Our parents will welcome this spacious and dynamic location for meetings, receptions, and as an audience for their students’ performances, and art exhibits.
All generous donors who inform SMA of their plans to include St. Mary’s Academy in their will or estate plan will become members of the Loretto Legacy Society. A bequest or life income gift demonstrates a partnership with SMA and its mission to provide an excellent education in the Loretto tradition. Your planned gift, via a trust, annuity, insurance policy or bequest can help ensure SMA’s future, save you tax dollars, help you avoid capital gains taxes, and increase your current income (in some cases).
