SMA Fund

Rather than covering a "gap" between tuition and the actual cost of running the school, the St. Mary's Academy  SMA Fund supports programs that go above and beyond the cost of tuition and helps SMA offer programs and resources that allow your child to explore their interests, develop passions, and become well-rounded adults in the future.

The SMA Fund helps your students to become curious about robotics and engineering, to learn how to play instruments and read music, to express themselves creatively, to take field trips and learn more about the outside world, to grow their reading and math skills, and so much more.

Please contact the Advancement Office at 303-762-8300 or email with any questions. 

St. Mary's Academy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. All donations to the SMA Fund are 100% tax deductible.

Fall Giving Campaign

This year, the St. Mary’s Academy giving campaign will culminate with Colorado Gives Day on Dec. 5, 2023. Colorado Gives Day features an incentive fund, and St. Mary’s Academy will receive a percentage of this fund based on our giving participation. Starting on Nov. 1, any gifts made to St. Mary's Academy online will count towards our total raised for Colorado Gives Day. The more money we raise on Colorado Gives Day, the higher percentage we receive of the incentive fund.
