Giving Opportunities
Many alums, friends and benefactors ask about gift giving opportunities at St. Mary's Seminary and The Ecumenical Institute of Theology. If you are interested in making a gift, the following may be helpful to you.

On-line Giving
We now gratefully accept donations to the annual fund on-line via PayPal. PayPal does not require you to have a PayPal account to donate to St. Mary's Seminary or to The Ecumenical Institute of Theology.

One Time Gift  
To make a one-time donation, please click the "Donate" button to the right. You will be asked to enter a donation amount and then click the "Update Total" button. You can either log in to PayPal or continue without logging on by following instructions on payment options which are on the left of the page.

Giving to the Annual Fund
The Annual Fund of both St. Mary's Seminary and The Ecumenical Institute helps support ongoing operations on an annual basis. Your gifts enable us to provide the best possible programs for our seminarians and the men and women enrolled in the E.I.

Giving to Special Projects
We also seek gifts for special capital projects authorized by the Board of Trustees. In recent years, St. Mary's Seminary & University has sponsored successful campaigns for renovations and major building projects as well as endowment campaigns in both the Ecumenical Institute and the School of Theology. If you are interested in a list of current gift opportunities, please contact the Advancement Office (410) 864-4262.
