On average, 80% of the cost to educate a child at Cathedral School of Saint Mary is covered by our tuition rates. Therefore, families are expected to support our fundraising efforts through our No-Cost Programs and with our Annual fundraising events.
Much of the rest of our fundraising dollars come from a collection of programs selected because of their unique ability to generate funding for our school without additional out-of-pocket expense to you. Your participation costs you nothing more than a change of habit.
$150 for 150 Years Campaign
Just as those before us planted seeds for fruits we now reap we ask that you join us on this journey of ensuring an education for future generations.
In celebration of Cathedral School’s Sesquicentennial Anniversary,
we seek the support of $150 from 150 donors.
Your donation will be deposited into Cathedral school’s endowment fund
and will assure a future for providing a Catholic education to children in Austin.
Donations made to this campaign will be added to the
Arturo & Louisa Casiraghi Endowment which benefits Cathedral School of Saint Mary.
As of today, that endowment balance is $11,479.
Our goal is to TRIPLE the endowment balance. We seek 150 donations of $150 in honor of our 150 years.
We ask you to prayfully consider joining the first 10 donors by making a gift today as an investment in the future of Catholic Education.
Donate Today to help us continue to provide a Catholic education
to students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.
We thank you for helping us continue this important legacy of Catholic education!

H.O.P.E. - Help Our Parish Educate
It's a simple concept. The school purchases HEB buying cards at a 4% discount and sells them at face value. That's where the school gets its profit. You buy $20, $50 or $100 HEB cards and use them to make all of your purchases at HEB or Central Market. Remember, there are no additional costs. Buy a $100 HEB card and use it to buy $100 of groceries.
Buy your HEB cards Monday thru Friday from 7:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the school office and/or, after all Sunday morning masses.
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3
Make a check payable to the Cathedral School of Saint Mary. Cards are available in $20, $50 and $100 increments.
Hand your cash or check to any scrip card volunteer and in return you will receive an HEB card.
Shop for groceries...
Buy the cards! Use the cards! It's that easy!
