Fundraising

St. Mary’s has long refrained from direct selling as a form of fundraising. We do however participate in a number of “non-selling” fundraising efforts. These programs generate both cash and equipment that help keep St. Mary’s ahead of the pack. Please consider participating in as many of these programs as possible. They are all fun and easy and they Support St. Mary’s!

Note: If you find a school benefit program that we're not currently participating in, please let us know by calling (440) 243-4555.
