Impact of Annual Giving
The Annual Fund Supports St. Mark's Students, Teachers, and Program
The St. Mark’s Annual Fund supports every facet of our students’ education and contributes significantly to the School’s operating budget. During the Lives of Consequence campaign, growth in the Annual Fund provided resources to support experiential learning initiatives, including Lion Term and St. Mark’s Saturdays, as well as innovative academic programs, arts and athletics, and faculty professional development.
Launched during the campaign in 2018, our annual Giving Day program encourages generous donations in a 24-hour period and engages students and faculty on campus as well as donors from around the world. In 2021, contributions to the Annual Fund earmarked for COVID-19 relief enabled St. Mark’s to implement necessary mitigation strategies, upgrade facilities and technology, and improve health and safety measures.
St. Mark’s continues to be intentionally small, thinking big. And as we strive to make big things happen, alumni and parent participation in the Annual Fund is critical to our success. Together, our shared commitment and contributions promote progress, encourage educational advancements, and support our entire community of students, faculty, and staff. Every gift makes a difference, and your loyalty matters. Thank you!
“The Annual Fund provides almost 10 percent of our operating budget, so it is absolutely integral to every part of the education that we provide.”
