SJC CommunityRising

Strong communities know that each of us is more successful when all of us rise together. This idea animated Catherine McAuley’s lifetime of faith and service. It shapes the critical concerns of the Sisters of Mercy. And it lives on at Saint Joseph’s College of Maine - in every person, every day.

Today, your support can help our community rise to new heights.

Your gift to SJC elevates our ability to shape learners into leaders, add momentum to our mission, and grow as a welcoming and innovative community. You can help us continue to learn together, work together, and serve together. When we all rise together in support of our beloved College, we honor more than a century of excellence and unlock a transformative future.

Join us. Make a gift today.
