About


Dear Purple Knights,

Over the past three days more than 500 alumni, families, and friends have shown their support for the Purple Knights Do More campaign. I am so proud of how far we've come. 

I want to keep the momentum going and am extending the campaign until tomorrow night. To sweeten the pot, I'm also increasing my gift.

When we reach the 1,000 donor mark, I will give an additional $30,000 for a total of $80,000 to support student scholarships. 

I give back because Saint Michael’s gave me a first-class education and instilled in me a deep sense of being of service to others. Together we make it possible for future students to have that same education and experience. 

Can you help us reach our goal by making a gift today? No gift is too small, and a gift to the area most meaningful to you will make a real difference. 

Let's do this, Purple Knights!

Purple Knights Do [24 Hours] More!

Dear Purple Knight alumni, families, and friends,

Over the past three days, nearly 600 alumni, families, and friends have shown their support for the Purple Knights Do More campaign. I am so proud of how far we’ve come.

Thanks to all of you, I want to keep the momentum going and am extending the campaign until tomorrow night. To sweeten the pot, I'm also increasing my gift.

When we reach the 1,000 donor mark, I will give an additional $30,000 for a total of $80,000 to support student scholarships.

I give back because Saint Michael’s gave me a first-class education and instilled in me a deep sense of being of service to others. Together we make it possible for future students to have that same education and experience.

Can you help us reach our goal by encouraging others to join you in making a gift? Share the campaign via email, text, and social media with a classmate or two.

Let's do this, Purple Knights!

Purple Knights Do More: Happy Hour Hustle

Hi Purple Knight alumni, families, and friends,

We have seen a tremendous outpouring of support from the greater Saint Michael’s Community this week! Nearly 300 of you have helped us raise more than $43,000 in two days – thank you!

We are going to need all hands on deck if we are going to reach 1,000 donors by the end of the day tomorrow. Can you help us?

In fact, we have an exciting challenge happening tonight! The fund that receives the greatest number of gifts between 6-9 PM ET will win the “Happy Hour Hustle” and receive a $5,000 bonus gift from Alumni Board President, George Bowen ’92!

Help spread the word and encourage others to join you in making a gift! Their gift – whether it’s $5, $50, or $500 – will make a difference.

Let’s come together to support today’s students and the campus community we love so much.

Thank you!
