Giving Priorities

Annual Giving

The Annual Giving Campaign is essential to our ability to fulfill our mission of providing academic excellence in the Catholic tradition at Mount de Sales Academy.  Annual Gifts are the only other significant source of unrestricted revenue outside of tuition.  Gifts to the Annual Giving Campaign provide critical funds that support the ongoing work at the school and bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate a student.

Capital Campaign 

Capital Campaigns at MDSA fund capital projects to maintain our historic campus and construct new additions to meet the needs of our current and future students. Most recently, we have had successful capital campaigns to fund the gym, convent, updated security and HVAC, and the construction of the athletic field.


It is a priority of the Board of Trustees and Administration that Mount de Sales Academy maintain an affordable tuition.  Despite the significant amount of financial aid each year, some families are still unable to send their daughters to Mount de Sales Academy.  Therefore, scholarship support is always needed at Mount de Sales Academy and makes a lifelong impact on the recipients.

If you would like to donate to fund scholarship at MDSA, we encourage donations to the St. Dominic Scholarship Fund. The St. Dominic Scholarship helps provide scholarship money for students with financial need. If you would like to learn more about funding specific scholarships, or setting up a new scholarship, please contact Claire Cohagan ’78, director of development, at or 410.744.8498 x126.


Mount de Sales Academy has identified the need for endowment as a priority in our long-range strategic planning.  Endowment is an investment in the future security of Mount de Sales Academy. 

Other Needs
