St. Margaret Mary School has been providing a quality Catholic education to children since 1949. The school operates with a fiscally sound and responsible budget. The budget is set by the board and parish finance committee.
School tuition and the parish subsidy provide for 95 percent of the budget. The remaining budget to operate the school must come from donations and fund raisers.
There are many opportunities for individuals, foundations, and corporations to make a gift to the school. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help, we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact our school office at 717-232-3771. Our Principal, Mrs. Jean Fennessy, or Development Director, Gloria Giambalvo will be happy to answer all of your questions.
We thank you in advance for your support, and may God bless you.
This campaign provides an opportunity to make an annual gift to the school to support the operating budget and to provide other school resources as needed. Gifts of $25 dollars or more are listed in the school newsletter.
Gifts can be made directly to the school endowment fund. These gifts go into the fund and the school benefits from the interest of the fund. This is a wonderful way to make a gift "in perpetuity" to the school. The gift remains "untouched" in the fund and then grows to benefit the school.
Individuals can make a "planned gift" by including the St. Margaret Mary School in their wills and bequests. Individuals can also name St. Margaret Mary School as a beneficiary of their life insurance policies
Gifts of appreciated stock provide another wonderful opportunity to make a gift to the school. The donor can make the gift of appreciated stock and receive tax benefits as allowed by law
