St. Mark’s School of Texas benefits from a rich history of philanthropic support. In the 1950s, Texas Instruments co-founders Cecil Green and Eugene McDermott set out to transform St. Mark’s into a leading independent school. They believed in the correlation between educational institutions and great cities; together, they contributed nearly $50 million to the School over five decades.
This legacy inspires a new generation of donors to invest in the School. Alumni, parents, and friends remain steadfast in their commitment to ensuring that St. Mark’s provides one of the very best educations in the country. Philanthropic support of the St. Mark’s Fund, along with endowment income, provides every student with the equivalent of a nearly $10,000 scholarship and offsets the cost of educating a Marksman.
