Senior Gift Campaign

Proud Senior. Proud Donor. 

Seniors Pay it Forward

Each year the graduating seniors of Saint Mary's make a gift to the College in an effort to pave the way forward for incoming Gaels. Now it's your turn.

Annual gifts to the College support scholarships, academic programs, athletic teams and all the great things that make the Gael experience special. Participate in this important piece of SMC giving, and pave the way for the next generation.

Become a Delta Gael

Inside every new Gael is a budding philanthropist. For many, college is the first place people learn anything about philanthropy. Just as we strive to instruct and grow every other aspect of our students, we strive to grow our students as philanthropists. But how do I join you ask? It takes one simple step: make a suggested annual gift of $10 or more.

Areas to Support

While we welcome gifts to any and all designations or areas of campus, the College has identified general scholarship support, SMC's unrestricted fund, and Gael athletics as the primary annual giving priorities, and we encourage you to consider these options as they help the College meet immediate educational needs, seize opportunities as they arise, and build and sustain the College for long-term stability.

Your donation to any program, department, athletic team, scholarship fund, or campus project at Saint Mary's counts toward the Senior Gift.

How to Make Your Gift

  • ONLINE  - it's fast, easy, and secure!
  • MAIL to the SMC Development Office (Attn: Jessica Porter '15) at PMB 3400, Moraga, CA 94575

Celebrating You

This spring President Donahue will host a special reception for our student donors where graduating seniors will receive a special piece of regalia for commencement—make a gift and don't miss this unique opportunity!

Make a gift of $50 or more and you'll be recognized at the 1863 Society level and you'll receive exclusive invitations and opportunities. 

Want to cement your name in Saint Mary's history? Consider commemorating this milestone with a personalized stone paver on our Joseph L. Alioto Recreation Center Plaza. For a tax-deductible gift of $500 or more, your paver will become a permanent part of SMC's dynamic center, and you'll also be counted as a student donor.
