Happy Birthday SMA!!!
December 3, 1867 …. It’s your Birthday St. Mary’s Academy!
This year, our beloved Academy will celebrate 153 years of EXCELLENCE and continues to produce some of the finest and most successful women in the world!
To celebrate her birthday, the Executive Board of St. Mary’s Academy Alumnae Association has developed a way Maryites everywhere can impact the success of our distinguished legacy.
Let’s face it, if we do not support, both financially and in our time and talent, our great institution will become just history! She was founded for us and by us and we must never let her light diminish.
What is “Happy Birthday SMA”? It’s a restricted fund that is generated from the love and generosity of Maryites all over the world. This fund is designated specifically to support the facility’s operational and maintenance needs as long as funds are available. As such, it will relieve the strain placed on other funding and allow those funds to be used by the school toward direct educational needs.
Why Give? We give because we are beneficiaries of a St. Mary’s Academy education. We give because we are the stakeholders in its future and the future of those that have yet to come. We give because we are SMA. We give because we are our sisters keepers. We give because the legacy is ours.
When Do We Give? The gift will be presented annually at Homecoming. A Birthday Card with the amount of the gift and the names of each donor will be acknowledged. The Class donating the highest collected funds will be recognized.
What Is Our Goal? Our goal is to have an annual appeal where Maryites pledge one dollar for each year St. Mary’s Academy has been in existence. This year our goal is to have each Maryite contribute $153.00.
How Do We Give? Donate what you would like! But… we are asking each Maryite to donate $153.00 and you will receive the Commemorative Plate that is only available to the first 500 Donors!
Our annual appeal will run from October 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021.
Maryites let’s come together and put the love we have for our school in action. Tomorrow depends on it! May God bless you for your generosity and commitment to St. Mary’s Academy.
Sincerely yours in Jesus, Mary, & Joseph,

GIVE NOLA DAY – 2022 TBA
GiveNOLA is a great opportunity to support the work of St. Mary’s Academy Alumnae Association. It is a way to thank the Executive Board and Committee Members who work diligently all year raising funds to financially assist our school. Why GiveNOLA? Because GiveNOLA is hassle free, tax deductible and purpose driven! Maryites and friends, no matter where they are, can come together and pool resources in an effort to continue the LEGACY of St Mary’s Academy. We are very grateful for your support on June 2, 2020 and thank you in advance. It really does take a Village! For 24 hours on June 2, 2020, take the time to be a part of the SMA Village!
