Saint Mary's has set philanthropic priorities that provide the agility to meet immediate needs and seize opportunities as they arise, while also building an endowment that will ensure the long-term stability of the College.
The SMC Fund
When you give to the SMC Fund you equip Saint Mary's College with the power and flexibility to creatively meet challenges and explore possibilities. Your support helps us make campus improvements and invest in classroom technology; it energizes student life activities, provides scholarships and strengthens the many programs that make the Saint Mary's experience truly one-of-a-kind.
Saint Mary's Endowment
Generous endowment gifts from alumni, parents, faculty and friends — and careful stewardship of their investments — are a vital component of Saint Mary's financial stability.
The endowment consists of assets that are invested for the long term to support the College's educational purposes. It is the cornerstone of our financial stability, representing funding that is not dependent upon enrollment, tuition or annual giving.
The College's endowment consists of approximately 300 individual funds established to support scholarships, professorships, programs and College priorities. The College's endowment operates similarly to a mutual fund, with donors buying "units" in the endowment investment pool.
