Become an advocate and show your support today!

This year, as part of our 1Day1SMC: Superheroes edition, we are challenging all Saint Mary's classes to a friendly competition as we seek 3,000 alumni donors.

Think your SMC class has the most spirit? Show our Gael community by making a gift of any amount, and see your class year rise in the leaderboards!

The competition is open now through May 7th. All 2,156 alumni who've already made a gift this year are already included, while we start with a clean slate for this mini-campaign at $0. Your gift today will automatically be added to the totals both here and onto the donor list for 1Day1SMC on April 28.

Here's how the class competition works! 

Each decade will have three class winners. Plus, the '40s classes will join the '50s group:

  1. Highest overall # of donors for the fiscal year.
  2. The highest donor percentage increase over this 3-week period.
  3. The highest donor count increase over this 3-week period.

Along with boosting your class, your gift will support our superheroes of tomorrow — our current and future students who've persevered through a year unlike any other and look to create a better world.



Already donated this academic year? You can still help your class win this challenge:

  1. Spread the word. Use our Advocacy Dashboard to post this campaign on your social media, or send it to your classmates to remind them to make their gift too.
  2. Offer a challenge or match. You can offer a challenge or matching gift specifically for your class to further incentivize your classmates to give!

If you have questions or ideas, please contact us at gaelsgive@stmarys-ca.edu or (925) 631-4509.

Thank you and go Gaels!
