If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.”
-Booker T. Washington
Our students need you. There is no other way to say it. They have one chance to receive a quality, foundational Catholic elementary education, and they trust us to deliver. Our children benefit from the programs we offer, but amidst the explosion of COVID-19 expenses, these programs could benefit greatly from your support. We are at a place in history we’ve never experienced before, and our children urgently need your help. No donation is too small. Please help our students – won’t you take a moment right now to click the button below and be part of the love our children need? No one regrets giving, and every gift makes a difference.
Make this a Day of Giving!
Annual Fund giving is a financial priority for our school. It is an opportunity for donors to help make a difference in the future of St. Mary School. Gifts are unrestricted and added to the school’s budget to meet current operating expenses, to enhance the programs and services offered to students, and to maintain the school buildings. The Annual Fund offsets the difference between tuition and the cost to educate each student. St. Mary School does not receive a subsidy from either the parish or the Diocese of Sacramento. Your gift will go far, please give in any amount today.
For gifts in memoriam or in honor of a loved one, we ask that you send your intentions directly to the school for processing. You may contact St. Mary School for assistance at (916) 452-1100 or [email protected].
