Calling All Angels

Your generosity is aiding SMA’s ability to focus on significantly growing enrollment, applying for grants, and building mutually beneficial relationships across our regional faith community. Over the next few years these collective efforts will allow SMA to transition to a sustainable business model built on tuition and community relationships while maintaining the integrity of its values – developing the whole person, cultivating leadership, and creating academic, moral, and all-around excellence in a caring and attentive environment.


Help a Northern Michigan student attend SMA by establishing a Named Scholarship to which qualifying students may apply, or a Memorial Fund to support student aid.

The process of establishing a scholarship is fairly simple. Initial considerations include funding and duration of an award, and establishing criteria used to identify qualified applicants.

Administration of scholarships may be designated to St. Michael the Archangel Foundation, Northern Michigan Catholic Foundation – Diocese of Gaylord or Harbor Springs-Petoskey Community Foundation.


SMA is grateful for the blessings our volunteers provide – from substitute teachers to special speakers/presentations to helping with events, programs, and campaigns. If you have the time and a talent you’d like to share, please contact at 231-881-9026.


Members of the Guardians Club pledge an amount of their choice for five years. Fulfillment may be made monthly, quarterly, or annually.

Recurring Gifts: In addition to a one-time gift, you have the option to set up a monthly, quarterly, or annually recurring donation. The convenience of a recurring gift, charged to your credit card or EFT from your account, breaks down an annual gift into more manageable contributions. Recurring gifts can be designated in any amount.


What will your legacy be?
A bequest or estate gift can be one of the most powerful ways to strengthen and protect an organization that supports a cause in which you believe. Your prayerful consideration of a bequest to St. Michael Academy is greatly appreciated.
