The St. Mary's Catholic School Trust Fund was established on October 9, 1986, as a 501c3 charitable organization. St. Mary's Catholic School was founded in 1987. The primary role of the school is the continuous formation of students through a Catholic program of education committed to a standard of excellence. Students are assisted in the development of their spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development as they journey through their many stages of growth within this gospel community. The school is staffed by lay teachers who together with the clergy, parents, and students, work for its uninterrupted growth and success to the greater honor and glory of God.
The intention of St. Mary's Catholic School Trust Fund is to oversee that all monies put into the Trust be invested and reinvested, and only the interest is to be used to help the school. This fund began with $32,000, and this principal plus the monies made each year thereafter is never touched. When the $1,000,000 mark is reached, then the interest will benefit the school, teachers, families, and students. The only fundraiser is Casino Night which is scheduled each fall.
Please consider donating to this fund through monetary contributions to commemorate occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, confirmations, special occasions, and memorials. This is a living and continuous contribution that will help the students of St. Mary's Catholic School who are the future of our Catholic faith. Mail contributions to:
