SSMO Foundation Events

The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon Foundation was established to encourage financial aid and community support for the education, health care, and community service ministries of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon.

One of the best things about this campus community is when supporters, donors, VCS parents, VC/SMV alumni, families of Maryville, SSMO Ministries employees, and the Sisters all come together to celebrate and support our wonderful causes.

We always look forward to seeing you at events both on and off campus.
