Thank you for the many invaluable roles you play in the St. Mark's community. Each year, alumni, parents, and friends like you support our boys and teachers by making a gift to the St. Mark’s Fund. Accounting for more than 11% of the School’s operating budget, the Fund is a critical resource for daily life at the School. Your gift to The St. Mark’s Fund provides unrestricted funding to help offset the cost of educating each boy.
 
Last year parents, alumni, and friends of the School contributed more than $5 million to the Fund for the first time in School history, raising more than $4 million for the sixth time in a row. The School depends on gifts like yours to meet current needs on campus and enrich the day-to-day intellectual, social, and personal development of every student.
