St. Mark's Giving Day
One community. One day.
One EXCEEDED goal!
St. Mark’s Giving Day was an extraordinary success! We received a total of 812 gifts and raised $327,881–far surpassing our goal of 600 gifts and meeting the $100,000 and $50,000 giving challenges. THANK YOU to all of the alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends who supported our School on Giving Day with gifts to this year's Annual Fund. Your generosity has brought us that much closer to our total goal of raising $2.37M by June 30, 2019.

#SMGivingDay is a 24–hour global event when our entire community comes together to demonstrate pride in our School and show our support with a gift to the Annual Fund. These gifts are vital to our mission to educate students to lead lives of consequence. Last year we exceeded our goal of 360 gifts during this one-day celebration. This year we are reaching higher with a goal to inspire 600 gifts—one for every member of our community including students, faculty, and staff. Can we count you in?
Accounting for approximately 10% 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. Your support on Giving Day will have a direct and immediate impact on all aspects of the School, including the academic program, athletics, arts, financial aid, faculty salaries and professional development, facilities, and campus life. Every contribution, of any size, helps St. Mark’s fulfill its mission of educating young people for lives of leadership and service, and brings us closer to our goal of inspiring 600 gifts on Giving Day.
