Gael pride everywhere on One Day One SMC!

Today we've been celebrating One Day One SMC across campus, and from our mobile devices and desktop computers. You have made this giving day challenge a success by joining, giving, and sharing about our 24-hour giving challenge.

We have until midnight tonight to exceed expectations, and continue to support our favorite Sant Mary's academic programs, including scholarships, endowments, student-centered experiences, and more!

Please check on how your giving area is doing and see how you can help. And, we have matching and challenge gifts waiting to be fulfilled!

Let's make every gift, and every minute count until 11:59 tonight, when the page closes forever. Consider making one more gift, or sharing to just one more person in your network. Go Gaels!

1,000 donors reached!

The Gaels have come out in full force! We have hit our 1,000 donor goal and there is still much potential to fulfill before the day is done. 

Let’s continue to push forward! Your generous gifts support creative arts, athletic endeavors, student access to research opportunities, and a wide array of programming that make Saint Mary’s education exceptional and unique.


Let's surpass our goal and see how far we can go, together!
