2016 - 2017 Education Fund
The unique mission of Catholic schools - empowering students to make a difference in the world - is essential in a society with so much need!
The St. Mark School Annual Fund helps make this a reality by providing essential support for all aspects of the school program. Thanks to your generous contributions last year, we raised $74,000 that helped improve on all parts of our school.
We have made tremendous strides over the last 12 months to turn these contributions into tangible and long lasting benefits for our students. If you have not done so, please click here to read our 2015-2016 year in review to see how we are putting these funds to good use.
This year we are targeting 100% participation of our school families at whatever giving level is within your means. We are reaching out to our school families, past and present, community partners, local businesses and national organizations with a year-long goal of raising $120,000 to invest into the school’s improvement and to sustain growing programs that directly impact the students. Additionally, you can select the preferred use of your contributions within the categories below. Thank you for your consideration and kind support.
