This is our defining moment

On Nov. 17, we announced The Defining Moment, the largest campaign in the history of St. Mary’s University, more than six times larger than any previous fundraising campaign. The biggest news? Our campaign goal is $130 million, and we have already raised $104,872,000!

This is a huge moment for St. Mary’s University. The Defining Moment Campaign is comprehensive in scope, advancing every one of our strategic priorities and setting our sights on the University’s vision.

By the end of this successful campaign, we will be much closer to becoming, as a Catholic and Marianist university, one of the finest private universities in the Southwest, always innovating but still grounded in our commitment to preparing young adults for lives of purpose and meaning, as well as for success.
