Mount St. Mary Academy
Endowment Gifts

The Lasting Efforts Endowments occupy an important place in Mount St. Mary’s current and future financial security. These endowments provide dependable revenue from year to year and make MSM less likely to raise tuition annually.


Our Endowment Funds address  key areas of need for Mount St. Mary Academy



-Faculty compensation



-Leadership development

-General Needs



Donors may contribute to any of the key endowments or named scholarships as well as MSM’s Tuition Assistance Fund. Donors also have the opportunity to establish a named scholarship, either need-based or merit-based, as a living tribute or in memory of a loved one.


How is a named endowment established?

To establish a named endowment or scholarship fund, the donor or family must make a commitment of at least $25,000. This may be paid at the time the fund is established or over a multi-year period of up to five years.
