Top 3 Reasons to Give
- Make a difference in the lives of students – 87% of all current SMCM students receive some form of financial aid.
- Provide opportunities to position students for success – tuition alone doesn’t cover the cost of the St. Mary’s College education.
- Be Counted! No matter the size of the gift, all donors play a critical role in student success.
