Men's Rugby Update!

After another great win against the storied rugby program of UC Berkeley in the CRAA D1A quarterfinals, it all comes down to this! In what has already been a historic season, the Gaels will compete for the last time this season in the West Region and take on the #3 seeded Cougars of BYU. 

The #1 ranked Gaels traveled to Provo, Utah back in March for a non-conference competition, beating the Cougars by a score of 38-21. However, the Cougars have had impressive wins this season against some of the top teams in the nation, including Cal, UCLA, and, most recently, the upset of the #2 ranked Wildcats of Central Washington University in the quarterfinals of the CRAA D1A 2024 playoffs. 

The winner of this weekend's match earns the honor of competing in the College Rugby Association of America D1A National Championship match on May 4 in Houston, Texas.  An anonymous donor has just agreed to match your donation to Men's Rugby dollar for dollar up to $25,000 dollars! Make your gift now before our campaign closes at 7pm PDT tonight! Go Gaels!!

Share to Three for SMC!

Thank you for supporting our current and future Gael students as we ramp up to One Day One SMC happening this Wednesday!

Gifts can be split up to five ways, and every gift counts, starting with just $5! Together, we can reach our ambitious goal and raise important dollars for the College and its students. 

See how Scholarships changed the lives of these students.👀

Thank you for joining us on One Day One SMC!

Hello One Day One SMC Community - 

Taking a moment here to thank you for your early contributions that will surely help us set the tone for our One Day One SMC, 1,863-minute giving challenge. 

As a Gael alumni, scholarship support was the defining factor in making my education possible. In addition to scholarships, there are many other areas of interest that you can support during One Day. Each gift can be split up to five ways so that you can give to the SMC causes you care about most. 

Please continue to share this good news of our giving day with three friends/family members and let's see how far we can spread the generosity for our beloved Gael students. Go Gaels! 

In Gratitude,
