We appreciate every gift to Saint Mary's. While tuition and fees cover approximately 90 percent of the College’s operating expenses, annual gifts help us support the programs that are the foundation of Saint Mary’s unique educational experience. 

Through donor support, we have been able to accomplish so much:

  • Named among the top 10 regional universities in the West by U.S. News and World Report
  • Considered Top 10 for Study Abroad Programs for the 11th year in a row.
  • Listed in Payscale.com's top 5 percent of all U.S. colleges and universities for return on investment

Every Gift Counts

Gifts to annual funds give the College the flexibility to seize new opportunities and manage the school’s most pressing and immediate needs.  You can also designate your gift to any area or purpose that inspires your philanthropic spirit-- scholarships, library resources, Gael athletics, books, mission and service projects, to name just a few. 

Maximize Your Gift

Your gift is tax deductible and your company may double or even triple your donation if you or your spouse is employed by a matching gift company.
