The SMS Annual Fund helps bridge the “gap” between tuition income and the true cost of operating the school. Your support helps keep tuition as affordable as possible and ensures that our programs continue to enrich the lives of our student athletes.
The Annual Fund directly supports curriculum development, academic programs, financial aid, athletic teams and our incredible teachers and coaches — this means: talented teachers, top-notch coaches, small classes, advanced technology, enriched academic programs, and an array of offerings in athletics. None of these initiatives would be possible without the generosity of so many to the SMS Annual Fund.
Your participation is critical because it serves as a strong indicator of loyalty and satisfaction with the school. Gifts of $1,000 and more to the Annual Fund reflect a leadership level of giving and represent the most generous and committed supporters of our mission. However, for those who are unable to give at the leadership level, we appreciate contributions of any size, as they reflect your belief in SMS. Whether you are a parent, alumnus/a, grandparent, or have another relationship with SMS, donating to the Annual Fund is a tangible way to demonstrate your appreciation for the SMS experience and will make a difference in the lives of the SMS students.
Gifts of any size may be designated for a specific goal of particular interest to the donor or left unrestricted. However, unrestricted gifts are particularly valuable, since they give SMS the flexibility to allocate the funds where and when they are most needed.
