SMA Fund and Tuition Assistance

Your gifts to the St. Mary’s Fund support academics, athletics, extracurricular activities, the arts, faith development, service opportunities and so much more. It also provides tuition assistance so all students are able to receive the benefit of a St. Mary’s education.

The St. Mary’s Fund helps bridge the gap between the actual cost of education for each St. Mary’s student and the tuition rate, which is more than $5,000 per student. That gap of nearly $5,000 represents all the things that make St. Mary’s really special – including retaining our amazing faculty, a full array of arts classes, service opportunities that expand students’ worldviews, staying on the cutting edge of technology and more. It also helps keep a St. Mary’s Academy education accessible to many of our students who wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise.

Every donor, at any level, makes a difference

We invite everyone in the St. Mary’s community to make a personally significant contribution to the St. Mary’s Fund. Whether you give $50 or $50,000, your donation will enrich the lives of each St. Mary’s student every day.

For more information about annual giving, contact Kate Baldwin, Director of Major Gifts at or 971.256.9969.

Stock and wire transfers

Contributions of appreciated stock, or other capital assets that have increased in value, can result in significant tax savings. The current full value of the gift can generally be deducted, and the capital gains tax on the amount of appreciation is avoided.
