The Annual Fund is essential to St. Margaret's School's success. Annual gifts, along with endowment income, close the gap between tuition, operation and maintenance, and the cost of a St. Margaret's education. It is important to build a culture of giving so that we are able to address the immediate financial challenges of our school as well as continue the advancement of our campus and facilities.
By the numbers, our Annual Fund is strong with support from the entire community — alumnae, parents, faculty, board members, and friends. Support from each of these entities is an key measure of confidence in our mission and programs. It is essential that we build a strong philanthropic base of support for St. Margaret's through a tradition of giving to the Annual Fund.
Continued Annual Fund Growth: We are grateful for the continued growth we are seeing with record level of giving to the 2017–18 Annual Fund. We raised over $500,000, surpassing our goal of $450,000 by nearly $75,000. We appreciate the many alumnae, parents, students, and friends who generously contributed to SMS this year.
