Your tax-deductible alumni appeal gift is a vote of confidence for Brother Martin High School, our faculty, staff and all those who support our school.

We ask that you return the attached form whether you are able to donate or not. Our goal is to have 100% response in regards to either the forms being returned or donating on-line. The response percentage is very important when we apply to foundations for grants or donations. Your generosity is most appreciated.
