The Sisterhood Fund, formerly the Annual Fund for St. Margaret's School is a unrestricted endowment that supports 4% of our operating budget and therefore makes a significant impact in all areas of school life, most notably in the areas of academic and athletic programs, scholarships, faculty professional development, and physical plant. The Sisterhood Fund campaigns help make up the difference between what tuition covers and the actual cost of our school's operation.
