The Mother Pauline Society

Your planned gift to Saint Mary’s College will have a powerful and enduring impact in influencing and supporting the future growth of the College. Your thoughtful generosity will establish your legacy at the College and inspire other Saint Mary’s alumnae and friends to consider creating a planned gift, too. 

The Mother Pauline Society recognizes and honors those individuals who have included Saint Mary’s College in their estate plans or established a life income gift with the College. The society is named after Mother Pauline who was affectionately called “The Builder” for the growth and direction of the College during her Presidential tenure, including her visionary leadership over the construction of the iconic Le Mans Hall. Similarly, planned gifts afford the College to build and plan for the future. Alumnae and friends of the society are vital to the continued success and stability of Saint Mary’s.

If you have established an estate or life income gift to advance the mission of Saint Mary’s College, we would be honored to welcome you to the Mother Pauline Society. To properly thank you and confirm that we understand how you would like Saint Mary’s to designate your gift, please let us know of your intentions. If you prefer to remain anonymous, we will gladly honor your request.
