The Recovery Fund was created to help with the unexpected hardships and challenges facing our students and College due to the pandemic. The Recovery Fund has provided – and is still delivering – a lifeline to students.
Continued support for this emergency fund is essential.

More than $123,000 has been raised and 112 grants have been awarded to students in need.

How is a $1,000 grant helping students?

Spring of 2020, as students departed campus and transitioned to virtual learning, grants helped with
  • airline, train and bus fares and access to local public transportation
  • moving costs including storage units, rent and utilities
  • technology such as laptops, audio/visual equipment and internet access
Summer of 2020, as students faced lost job opportunities and family situations changed, grants helped with
  • groceries, medicine and supplies
  • phone bills, health and car insurance
  • online courses
Fall of 2020, as students adjust to a mix of remote and classroom learning, they continue to apply for help with
  • tuition and meal plans
  • books, materials and technology needs
  • child/dependent care and unexpected burdens on families

We appreciate all of our donors to the Recovery Fund

We want to extend a special thank you to the SMCM Student Government Association for its generous $50,000 contribution to the Recovery Fund.

“As tough as things are right now, this too will end. It has never been more important to make sure the institution we care about is in the best position possible to rebound and continue with the important mission.” --Douglass Mayer ‘04

“The St. Mary's College faculty was there for me when I was an undergrad. There were times when I was short on funds, food and shelter. I don't think I recognized the valuable acceptance and support that St. Mary's provided for me at the time and I want to help the current students at this time.” --Shelby Fleischer ‘79

“When we donate, we help to ensure that current students have access, not only to a quality education, but to the unique experience that comes with being a member of the St Mary’s College community.” --Andrew Wilhelm ‘16
