Support Your Class Gift

Reunion is also a time to say thanks once again to the place and people who helped make you who you are today. Class gifts are a reunion tradition that shows your appreciation for SMC.

Gifts of any size are welcome, either a one-time gift or a convenient recurring gift. If you’ve already made your gift this fiscal year – thank you! If you haven’t, please consider supporting the College’s new Center for Global Engagement initiative. There is an anonymous donor matching up to $250,000 for this campaign. Your class gift will have a positive impact on today’s students in countless ways. Please make your gift today!
