The operating budget for The Athenaeum of Ohio/ Mount St. Mary's Seminary for the fiscal year 2011-2012 is $4.2 million dollars - the cost of opening the doors each day, conducting numerous academic programs, providing tuition aid and housing to seminarians, updating computer resources necessary for teaching, learning and administration, and maintaining the physical plant.
Vital to the operation of the institution is the steady and loyal support of alumni, parents, friends, the business community, organizations, and foundations. The importance of unrestricted support cannot be overstated. The Athenaeum Annual Fund and its Bishop Fenwick Society enable the Athenaeum to meet daily operating expenses.
