Annual Fund: Helping Every Student Every Day

Goal: $15 million

The Annual Fund is a consistent and significant source of funding for Saint Mary’s. Unrestricted Annual Fund gifts are critical to maintaining the margin of excellence at the College, and they are used in multiple ways to support students, faculty, and staff.

Annual Fund gifts:

  • Provide funds for scholarships and financial assistance that help recruit talented young women who desire a Saint Mary’s education
  • Attract and retain outstanding faculty who through their dedicated teaching and scholarship educate and guide Saint Mary’s students
  • Sustain vibrant programs beyond the classroom such as global education, service programs, and guest lecturers on campus
  • Provide resources to respond to new opportunities and challenges
  • Maintain the historic campus that alumnae and friends cherish


As part of Faith Always, Action Now, the Annual Fund goal is $15 million. At the conclusion of the campaign, sustaining support for the
Annual Fund will continue to reinforce the important work of the College.
