What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is by far the most important fundraising effort at St. Mark’s each year, and gifts at any level demonstrate our community’s commitment to our school’s mission. “Every family; every year” is the motto of the St. Mark’s Annual Fund.  Simply put, we ask you to make a donation to enhance the school’s budget beyond your tuition dollars.  There is strength in numbers and 100% participation from our families is key to the annual fund’s success.  Annual fund dollars are used for program improvements in technology, curriculum, professional development, facilities, and more.  Your donation will allow St. Mark’s to provide the best environment for our children.  

Can we count on you?

Meet Cathy and David Herr

"As we emerge from a unique time in our history, the St. Mark’s students, faculty, and families have displayed a strong sense of connection and growth. Witnessing our community’s strength in action, not only last year, but for the past several years, leaves us extremely excited about the future of our beloved school. We encourage you to support the Annual Fund; our commitment to the continued growth of each child’s individuality, with a proactive and progressive approach." - Cathy and David Herr, the 2021-2022 Annual Fund Chairs
