Giving Opportunities

There are many ways to show your confidence and commitment to the future of Saint Mary's College. A strong Annual Fund means that Saint Mary's can continue to offer students an excellent education without dramatic increases in tuition or eroding the strength of the endowment.

“I hope, when I am a Saint Mary's alumna, I will be able to help students the way alumnae donors have helped me. They have made it possible for me to attend Saint Mary's. I am extremely grateful to them.”

—Amalia Dickenson ’08
