2010 was another very successful year for St. Mary’s fundraising efforts. With the amazing help of donors, businesses, and foundations we raised over $1,250,000 in support of projects, programs, and capital improvements.
In order to thank you all for your help and to continue to show you how much we appreciate your generosity we will provide increased opportunities to visit with you. We will offer tours of St. Mary’s facilities, invite you to breakfast, and host an open house at the Development Office. We would also welcome an invitation to visit with you to say ‘thank s’ and to come and share our many successes.
In January we engaged John Donovan of J Donovan Associates to work with us over the course of the year in the creation and implementation of a Planned Giving Program. J Donovan Associates is not new to St. Mary’s. They helped us in 2008 to create and implement the very successful With All Our Hearts Capital Campaign. We are excited to have his expertise on board as we begin this very important work. Educational sessions on this topic will be offered; stay tuned!
So…once again…thank you, thank you, thank you. Here’s to a great 2011!!
