THE ST. MARK’S FUND

The St. Mark’s Fund is the School’s philanthropic priority and provides resources for everything across campus including faculty support, program needs, and financial aid. For decades, our alumni have made a difference for our boys and faculty by investing in the St. Mark’s Fund, and the St. Mark’s Fund remains the primary way alumni can make a difference at 10600 Preston Road today. By making a gift to the St. Mark’s Fund before June 30, you can champion this incredible legacy and help develop men of tremendous character who will serve with intelligence, compassion, and integrity.
