Fundraising & Donations

Annual fundraising benefits every single child at St. Mary, Star of the Sea School.  The cost of challenging each student to reach for academic excellence, in an environment based on the Catholic values that inspire leadership in faith and action, exceeds tuition every year.

Fundraising gifts small and large have an immediate impact on keeping St. Mary the outstanding school that it is.  We are grateful for all of the wonderful ways our school and parish community are supported.

The Knights of Columbus are a generous supporter of our school! Thank you to the Knights for their generous donations supporting our 2016 Luau and Auction and our Jogathon!  Thank you to JC Custom Scapes for supporting our 2016 Jogathon! To learn more about becoming involved in the Knights of Columbus, please contact the Parish Office at (760) 722-1688.
