St. Mary's Bridge the Gap Campaign

Bridge the Gap Campaign

St. Mary of the Mills School is beginning our first annual Bridge the Gap Campaign!  Our Bridge the Gap campaign will help us to bridge the difference between what is charged for tuition and the actual costs incurred to educate each child and properly run the school.  For St. Mary of the Mills School this difference is approximately $3000 per child.    This campaign will allow us to provide enhancements to the school’s educational programs, allow for long range facilities planning and maintenance as well as the overall financial needs of the school.  Our goal is to raise $150K.  With just over 300 families in the school, this would mean a minimum of $500 per family. 

$500 is a lot of money, for this we truly understand.    It can be achieved though, by working with those who support you and who want the same thing we all want, to give your children the best education possible.  We have a strategy for you to help raise this amount of money and maybe even more.  Family is the key word.  Your family is made up of so many different parts, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Godparents, Cousins, Brothers, Sisters, and even your friends that feel like family.  If each part of your family donated a portion of the $500, then it would not be such a burden to raise the full amount.  St. Mary of the Mills School and your children, need this help. 

Financial Goal $150,000

(300 families X $500)

Participation Goal: 100% of our current families/extended families contributing in some way

Support leads to:

·        Educational enhancements

·        Long Range facilities planning/maintenance

·        Overall financial needs of the school


Families who fulfill the $500 donation will receive $100 towards their fundraising/service obligation.  Families who are able to raise $1000 or more will have their entire fundraising and service obligation fulfilled. 

We humbly implore you to please, become a part of this campaign, today.
