Thursday, April 11 is Giving Day at St. Mark's. Last year, the School made history, surpassing its goal of 360 gifts in 24 hours, representing one gift for each of St. Mark's 360 students. This year's goal is even more ambitious. St. Mark's is seeking 600 gifts in 24 hours—one gift for each member of the School community: students, faculty, and staff, all in support of the Annual Fund.
Annual Fund gifts provide critical support for every aspect of the St. Mark's experience. Accounting for approximately 10 percent of the operating budget, gifts to the Annual Fund help close the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate a St. Mark's student. Generous financial support through the Annual Fund has a direct and immediate impact on all aspects of the School— the academic program, athletics, arts, financial aid, professional development, facilities, and campus life. Additionally, Annual Fund gifts provide the School with the flexibility to respond quickly to new opportunities and unexpected needs.
Don't miss out! This 24-hour giving challenge is the perfect opportunity to make a difference for current and future Lions. To make a gift or learn more about giving day, visit https://www.stmarksschool.org/giving-day.
