Frequently Asked Questions

Who we are: The Royal Pride Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to investing in projects that will improve San Marcos High School and support its students, beyond what traditional public school funding sources provide. .

Our Mission: Our mission is to provide strategic guidance and funding for projects that will support all students and further drive San Marcos High School to excellence in academics, extracurricular pursuits, and facilities.

How we work: Every year the Royal Pride Foundation hosts the Royal Gala, a community celebration where parents, SMHS staff, and the local community come together to raise funds for our mission.  The Gala has raised over $1,000,000 to date.

Project selection: Royal Pride Foundation uses a grant review and selection process to solicit, review, and award grants to projects that meet our mission.  Our goal is to have a far reaching impact and provide our educators with resources that wouldn’t otherwise be available.

You can help: Our supporters understand that when we work collectively to elevate the experience for all San Marcos students, each individual student realizes the benefits. You can help in so many ways, by sponsoring the event, donating an auction item, volunteering your time at the Royal Gala, and helping others become involved.
