Give to the Mount
Catholic liberal arts institutions like the Mount are more important now than ever. A troubled world needs educated people of integrity to guide it back into the light; people like our students, faculty, staff and alumni. As we enter our third century of transformational Catholic education, the Mount is dedicated to influencing the global conversation. This is your opportunity to help us deliver that message with a gift.
Perhaps you’d like to honor the lifelong friendships you gathered here or simply celebrate the Mount spirit; you may want to show your appreciation for the great teachers who shaped your character or had a conversation with you about faith and reason that changed your life. Or maybe you’re concerned about increasing the value of Mount St. Mary’s University for generations to come.
Your generosity will help the Mount move forward into its third century as a nationally recognized program of academic excellence and innovation. Join us, today, as we take a bold, courageous step into a better future.
These gifts include both unrestricted and restricted contributions for current fiscal year operations. Annual fund gifts are unrestricted and can be used for ongoing current expenses. Restricted gifts provide budgetary support for current operations as well. Their use may be specifically designated for areas such as the Terrace Renovation Project, athletics, departmental needs, annually awarded scholarships, library or memorial gifts.
Scholarships are the lifeblood for students. When you make it possible for a student to attend the Mount, you touch far more than one life. You touch all those whom Mount graduates will serve, lead, teach and love.
Gifts to the endowment create permanent sources of income for important needs and are critical to the future of the Mount. Endowments are needed in such areas as student scholarships, faculty chairs, library collections and academic programs. In the past seven years the Mount’s endowment has grown from $11 million to $30 million, helping provide a stable base for operating costs. Relying more on this permanent capital base and less on student tuition allows the Mount to take advantage of new opportunities for advancement and growth, regardless of the economic climate. A minimum gift of $50,000 will endow a named fund.
