Why I Give

Giving to the Mount

Gifts from alumni, parents and friends enhance the value of the Mount experience in many ways. Your gifts help more deserving students get access to a quality Mount education. Most importantly, your gift to the Mount shows the value you place on the people and principles of this beloved institution that we all hold in common.

There are no words that can adequately express my gratitude for all of the support for students like me. By awarding me the Rev. Carl J. Fives Alumni Scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden, allowing me to focus more on the most important aspect of school: learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community.

Give Your Way

Gifts are personal, and you want to be able to make an impact on the Mount in a way that is most meaningful to you. Here are some of the most common ways people choose to give. Or, if you have another idea, give us a call so we can help you find the gift that best suits your intentions.

  • Support the Annual Fund

    Tuition and fees cover just 73% of the costs of educating Mount students. When you donate to the Annual Fund you help us support student scholarships and need-based financial aid, attract and retain renowned faculty, upgrade and maintain state-of-the-art educational and athletic facilities, and ensure that the value of a Mount education continues to climb.

  • Crowd Funded Projects

    Want to give to a project that you're really passionate about? Join other like-minded philanthropists to give directly to your cause.

  • Plan Your Gift

    Ensure that your relationship with Mount St. Mary's University is honored by including a planned gift to the university in your estate plans. Your legacy of generosity will help shape the future of the Mount for generations to come.

  • Give Stocks and Securities

    Giving appreciated securities is a convenient way to support the Mount while gaining tax advantages.

  • Build the Endowment

    Mount St. Mary’s University’s endowment is our financial bedrock. It is a permanent source of funding the university relies on for countless functions. You can make unrestricted gifts or choose to fund sustainable scholarships, lecture series, faculty positions, academic or athletic awards and more, all of which may be created in memoriam or in a donor's name.

Rev. Daniel Mode

If we can accept the truth of how God has made us—with our gifts and talents and our challenges—we can go a long way to being humble before God and others.

Rev. Daniel L. Mode, CHC, USN, S’92 Seminary
