Giving Back

Maura O'Neil KahnFor Maura O’Neil Kahn ’83, supporting Saint Mary’s College is only natural.

“As I was growing up, I remember seeing my mom sitting at the table writing her check for her annual contribution to the women’s college she attended. Supporting Saint Mary’s College was what I was supposed to do in return for my wonderful education,” she says.

Maura learned a valuable lesson about giving from close friends, who told her they always gave with a purpose. As a result Maura has supported programs that were important to her while she attended Saint Mary’s.

“Recently, my sisters and I established the Kahn Family Fund to support rising juniors who receive summer internships in their major at low or no pay,” Maura shares. “We know first-hand that these experiences lead to full time jobs after graduation.”

Maura supports the fund through both annual and planned giving, and she hopes that she will have opportunities in the future to accelerate her philanthropic plan.
