St. Martin’s 24-Hour Day of Giving 2023 

Tuesday, January 31 - Wednesday, February 1
12:00 pm – 12:00 pm

Donations may be made on our safe and secure online payment portal (below) or by check/cash mailed/dropped off to school.

St. Martin’s is asking for donations from all who has been impacted by Catholic schools at some point in their lives. We are asking for donations from students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, grandparents, parishioners, and friends.

Our goal this year is $5,000 to establish the Arlene Patti Memorial Garden, which will be built just outside our main school doors. It will serve as a quiet, reflective place where we can be comforted and inspired. The centerpiece will be a granite bench, engraved with Mrs. Patti’s name and a quote at, the end of a stone path. We will add shrubs, bushes, and seasonal flowers to celebrate our cherished memories.


Every student who donates at least $5 will receive a pair of red SMS Crusader inspired sunglasses!


Double your impact! A very generous school family will match every donation up to $500 once each $50 classroom match has been reached! Each grade has at least one family who has offered to match the donations made from their class, up to $50 and in some cases higher. Therefore, if you either donate online or send in money with your child, your donation will double or triple in value.

Thank you for supporting our mission! With your help, we will have a very successful Day of Giving. Please contact Anne Gemunder, Director of Development at or your child’s homeroom teacher with questions or concerns.
