Supporting the Mount
Making Good Things Happen
Fundraising is necessary because tuition alone does not cover the total cost of educating a Mount student, or students at any private school. The Mount does not receive financial subsidies from any government source, diocese, or congregation. The school relies on the generous contributions of our donors to eliminate the gap between tuition and actual costs.
About the Advancement Office
The Advancement Office is responsible for the school's fundraising program, which encompasses annual giving, capital campaigns, major gifts, and planned giving. The Office establishes policies for the coordination of advancement activities. It also provides research, gift giving, accounting, and donor relation services.
One of the ways Mount Saint Mary Academy remains a vibrant and vital community is through donor support of the Annual Fund and gifts for capital and special projects. Every gift, no matter how small, is an important recognition of the Mount and its mission. The Mount is grateful for the participation of all donors.
Every year, the Mount makes an appeal to all alumnae, current parents, past parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends for their support of the Annual Fund. Their generous gifts make it possible for Mount Saint Mary to continue its educational mission. The Annual Fund directly supports the gifted faculty who manage the academic excellence for which the school is known, as well as many other areas of the operating budget.
