StM Annual Fund

Donor Levels

Head of School's Circle

StM Annual Fund gifts touch every student, every program, and virtually every part of our school life. Your investment in the Annual Fund enhances our students’ educational experience, enabling St. Martin’s to honor our commitment to faith, scholarship, and service by integrating innovation and technology into our relevant and revered traditions.

The Annual Fund is at the heart of the school’s fundraising efforts. As with most independent schools, tuition does not cover the entire cost of educating a St. Martin's student. The Annual Fund helps fill the gap between the tuition revenue and the actual cost of providing the high-quality education that our students experience at St. Martin's.

The Annual Fund Campaign includes opportunities throughout the year to invest in St. Martin’s mission through special appeals.  These may include:
St. Martin's is grateful to its Class Agents, parent volunteers from each grade level to help their classes reach 100% family participation. These volunteers are extremely important to the overall success of the campaign. 


Donations can be in the form of cash, checks, credit cards, pledges, stocks, and matching gifts. All annual fund gifts are tax-deductible.

When considering your gift, please remember:

  • All gifts to the StM Annual Fund this year will be applied to expenses this year.
  • The StM Annual Fund Campaign begins July 1 and ends June 30.
  • Gifts may be pledged and then paid in installments.
  • Donors at the Founder's level or higher are invited to an annual Thank You Reception in the fall and receive VIP Passes good for lunch with the head of school, athletic events, and theatre performances.
  • You may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift with a Matching Gift from your employer or your spouse's employer.

“I am grateful for the competence and devotion of our teachers; the richness of our traditions; the commitment to faith, scholarship and service; the innovative learning environments; and the sense of community. Your gifts to the StM Annual Fund help to make all this possible.”
