Ways to Give

All gifts are vital to the support of Saint Mary’s College High School’s annual, capital, and endowment needs. There are a variety of ways to contribute so that each investor may tailor his or her giving to meet individual preferences while meeting the needs of our students .

Gifts of Cash

Most donors find that online giving is the easiest way to make a gift . Other donors prefer to make their gift by check. Donations to Saint Mary’s are fully tax-deductible and have an impact on the students, school programs, and the 44% of families on tuition assistance .

Bequests & Planned Gifts

Remember Saint Mary’s College High School in your will or trust and create a lasting legacy at the school . Bequests may include an estate, a percentage of an estate or a specific cash amount. If you have already included Saint Mary’s in your estate plans, please let us know so that we may honor you as a Saint Mary’s Legacy member .

Stocks, Securities and Other Real Property

Gifts of securities or other real property provide immediate support to the school . Donors receive tax deductions based on the fair market value of the property at the time of the gift and avoid capital gains tax on appreciated property .

Memorial/Tribute Gifts


Saint Mary’s gratefully recognizes gifts made in memory of or in honor of a friend, family or faculty member, or to acknowledge a birthday, graduation, anniversary, or other significant event . The names of those remembered with a memorial gift will be entered in the Brothers Intentions Book and offered in the Brothers daily prayers.




You may make a commitment to Saint Mary’s payable through installments tailored to your desired schedule. This may allow you to give more generously over a period of time than would be possible through a single contribution, thus making a greater difference to Saint Mary’s students. Please contact the Advancement Office at (510) 559-6206, [email protected] for more information.
