The 1852 Club honors individuals who have made the commitment to invest in the University through a recurring gift. Donors who join the 1852 Club arrange for monthly gifts or quarterly gifts of $18.52 or more.
Recurring gifts offer St. Mary’s supporters a convenient method of contributing to the University because the gift is ongoing after a one-time setup.
When the University receives a recurring gift, our supporters have the opportunity to see their donations grow throughout the year as the annual amount of their donation increases by the end of the year. A gift through the 1852 Club gives donors interested in smaller gifts an opportunity to give more overtime. Recurring gifts also provide a consistent and continuous source of support for the University’s programs.
