GIVE NOLA DAY – JUNE 2, 2020
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!

What Is The Legacy Project?
For over one hundred and fifty years, St. Mary’s Academy has served the communities of New Orleans. Excellence in education and spiritual elevation has been the foundation of our mission. Established in 1867 by the Sisters of the Holy Family, St. Mary’s Academy has produced some of the most successful and influential women of our time.
The number of catholic elementary schools that served our children prior to Hurricane Katrina has drastically diminished. The restructuring of our educational system introduce new challenges that require new and creative solutions.
The “Legacy Project” is an initiative that focuses on bringing graduates together in an ambitious effort to promote the legacy of St. Mary’s Academy. The mission is to develop and implement a plan that will reinvigorate and revitalize our school. This plan will encourage graduates to recognize the vital role they play in the school’s future. The plan will include but is not limited to the following:
- Increasing Alumnae Involvement
- Increasing School Enrollment
- Building Scholarship Endowment
- Marketing School
Many sacrifices have been made by the Sisters of the Holy Family to continue serving our children.
