About

Join us today in helping our community rise to new heights. Creating a strong community animated Catherine McAuley’s lifetime of faith and service, shaping the work of the Sisters of Mercy today, and it lives on at Saint Joseph’s College of Maine – in every person, every day.

As a Mercy college, Saint Joseph’s has continued to grow leaders who will sustain their communities—we are now explicitly naming this as our primary focus. Join the Community Rising as we elevate 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.

Today is the first day of the rest of the sustained life of Saint Joseph’s College. Stay tuned in the weeks and months ahead to hear about ways that you—our Community—can work with us, and yes, rise with us.

Update #7 - 19 days ago

With graduation approaching on May 14th, the class of 2022 will be marking the completion of their degree and years of hard work coming to fruition. This celebration would not be possible without the support from the entire SJC community. Through generous donations, our community has ensured that all our students could continue to learn and graduate on time, even as their financial situations were disrupted by COVID-19. The importance of this commitment cannot be overstated and has provided opportunities for growth and exploration.

Make a gift to the College today in honor of our graduates and to ensure that students can continue to learn at an institution that is focused on student success. Your gift will make it possible for today’s students to stay enrolled and engaged with the transformative community at Saint Joseph’s College.

Update #6 - 2 months ago

This year on Giving Day, you can help Mercy values go even further. Over the past few days, the College has recognized our opportunity to support our community, while also serving the greatest need abroad. Right now that greatest need is in Ukraine.

Every gift made on Giving Day, this Friday March 18, will impact two worthy causes. Half will go to our unrestricted Community Rising effort to help our Monks achieve success in the classroom, on the field, and on the job. Half will go to Partners in World Health to bring much needed medical supplies to the people of Ukraine.

Our goal on Giving Day is based on participation - this year we’re looking to reach 850 donors. Your gift, no matter the size, will make an impact. Follow our progress throughout the day online at givingday.sjcme.edu and on social media.

Please help spread the word and give what you can. This is your chance to help the Saint Joe’s community rise, while providing mercy to devastated communities across Ukraine. Putting our shared values to work, your support can grow and sustain community, right here and where it’s needed most.
