Santa Monica College Foundation Giving

Reasons for giving to Santa Monica College are countless. You have seen them in the faces on these pages. Here are the ways:

Unrestricted: A gift to the Foundation's Annual Fund allows us to continue the student/faculty "Margin of Excellence" programs detailed on this site's Programs page. Any amount is deeply appreciated and can have a significant impact. At the $1,000 level, you also will be named a member of the prestigious President's Circle and enjoy the extra benefits of this group's many activities. Click here to join now or contact us.

Restricted: Donations also may be designated for a particular interest or need, such as Emeritus College, the Theatre Arts program, a scholarship fund, athletics or public programming through the SMC Associates. Click here to donate on-line or  contact us.
