Greetings from the Development Office. Since 1980, our school has inspired curiosity and a love of learning in children. Thanks to support from our generous community, we are able to attract and retain outstanding teachers who fulfill the school's mission of developing well-rounded critical thinkers in a vibrant, inclusive environment.
The True Blue Fund is the school’s primary fundraising campaign and helps to bridge the gap between tuition and the school’s full operating budget. Gifts range from $5 to $25,000 and every donation makes an impact in supporting our students and teachers. Capital and endowment campaigns take place on a cyclical basis. In 2002, construction of the Arts and Science building and gymnasium was completed. In 2008, we completed the Campaign for Teaching and Learning, raising $3.2 million in endowment funds to support our faculty and students. In 2011, we established The Damon Kerby Fund for Financial Aid, a new endowment fund which has raised $800,000 in honor of Damon Kerby's 24 years as headmaster of what was then Saint Mark's School.
The Development Office manages fundraising, special events, alumni relations, and publications. It also serves as a liaison between the Parents’ Association and the school. The PA hosts the spring fundraiser, the Fun Run, Friends & Fairways Golf Tournament, and other events.
Families have many competing demands on their volunteer time and philanthropic interests, and the school is very grateful for everyone’s participation in our extraordinary community.
