Front Row Seat Annual Fund
What is the Annual Fund?
The Front Row Seat Annual Fund is our annual giving campaign that supports programs that are critical to the St. Mary's experience. Donations to The Front Row Seat Annual Fund are the additional investment of resources that ensures that we can continue to provide an innovative, creative, and memorable student experience that inspires and engages.
Why is the Annual Fund Important?
The Annual Fund strengthens and sustains our operating budget as charitable contributions make up approximately fifteen percent of the annual operating budget at St. Mary's Episcopal School. Gifts to The Annual Fund enable our school to continue to provide the very best educational experience for our students. We ask all families to please make St. Mary's Episcopal School one of your philanthropies of choice.
