Learning disabilities know no boundaries and the more than 1,000 students served each year by Miriam reside in nearly 100 different zip codes within a 70-mile radius of St. Louis. Miriam is committed to making our programs accessible to all children who can benefit from our specialized services.

Miriam annually provides more than $1,000,000 in need-based tuition assistance to more than half of the families we serve. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization we rely on the generous financial support of individuals, foundations, and corporations to help provide our specialized programming. Contact the Miriam Development Office at 314.962.6059 for more information about the following ways to give.

Miriam’s Annual Fund provides unrestricted operating support to Miriam School, Miriam Academy and Miriam Learning Center and bridges the gap between tuition and the full cost of education for each student. Your annual gift benefits today’s students and ensures Miriam will continue to help students with learning disabilities meet their potential.

Charitable gift annuities are one of the simplest and most popular forms of life income gifts. Through a simple contract the donor makes a gift of cash, securities, or property to Miriam and, in return, Miriam agrees to pay the annuitant (the donor or another beneficiary) a fixed amount each year for the rest of his/her life.

Please contact Ron Van Fleet at 314.962.6059 or for more information.

Donors may choose to honor or memorialize a special person or people by endowing a scholarship, position, or program at Miriam. Establishing an endowment enables the donor to personalize a contribution of $25,000 or more while also providing for the future needs of Miriam.
