Ways to Give

Charitable gifts sustain the Saint Mary tradition of excellence
In order to continue our tradition of excellence, the University of Saint Mary depends on the generous support of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and other friends. Whether it is providing scholarships to deserving students, building and renovating campus facilities, or funding outstanding academic programs, your gifts to the university are vital to our continued success.
For many students, a college education simply would not be possible without financial aid. Throughout its history, the University of Saint Mary has had an unwavering commitment to serving capable students with financial needs. Today, the university provides over $5 million a year in student scholarships. Many of those students are the first generation in their families to go to college.
The university is currently renovating its historic Berchmans Hall to house the first ever Saint Mary doctorate--the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Berchmans will become the hub of USM's burgeoning health care offerings.
To meet the growing demand for modern, on-campus housing, USM built a new residence hall that will provide apartment-style accommodations for 100 students. The $4.8 million dorm opened at the start of the fall 2009 semester.
In response to the nation’s critical health care staffing shortages, USM is expanding its health care programs. Specific areas of need include nursing, physical therapy, and health information management.
