In response to COVID-19, St. Mary’s University launched the Rattlers Helping Rattlers campaign in support of the Student Emergency Fund (SEF) to help students with short-term but critical financial needs – family job loss, lost part-time wages, and unexpected moving expenses. When our students return in the fall, they will face similar challenges. Your gifts, to any area, support our students as they navigate these tumultuous times and keeps them on their path during their time at St. Mary’s University and beyond.

“St. Mary’s has weathered many ups and downs in its 168 years and continues to be financially sound and committed to its mission as a Catholic and Marianist University. The University is working to position itself, not out of any concern for survival, but in a sincere effort to move beyond the pandemic prepared to continue to deliver a quality education grounded in our mission. Thank you for being a part of that effort.”
– Tom Mengler, St. Mary’s University President
