The Sacramento Alumni Chapter was founded by four SMC grads, Tom O’Neil '52, Ed Lammerding '51, Russ Deterding '51, and Brother Mel Anderson '51 as a way to connect Saint Mary's alumni in the capitol area. In 2013, the chapter launched the Sacramento Alumni Chapter Scholarship, which helps make it possible for one deserving Sacramento area high school graduate to attend Saint Mary's College. This year, our goal is to raise enough money to provide at least two students with a $5,000 scholarship. But we can't do this without your help! 

Now is the time to expand our efforts to foster a strong sense of community in the Sacramento area and, at the same time, make the Saint Mary’s experience available to deserving high school graduates. 

Need more incentive? We have a generous donor who is matching all gifts, up to $5,000 total! You can double your impact when you give to the scholarship fund and help us reach our goal of $10,000. 

The bells of Saint Mary’s are calling you to make an investment of $10 or more and spread the word to at least five other Sacramento area SMC alumni, parents, and friends. 

Let them know you've contributed, encourage them to join you in this grassroots movement, and be a part of something that is as lasting as the SMC legacy.

We established this scholarship because, as students, we benefited from the generosity of people we never even knew such as benefactors who supported the college and the Christian Brothers whose sacrifices made the Saint Mary’s experience a reality for us. We want to pay it forward. 

We urge you to join us in making the unique and priceless Saint Mary's experience a reality for this year’s recipients and for many more generations to come.
