Fundraising at San Martin/Gwinn is very important and impacts every student at SMG. Without our fundraising efforts our students would not have the opportunity for many of the wonderful activities that are offered, such as school-wide music instruction for every grade, middle school athletics, field trips, art in the classroom, assemblies, and so much more.
Every year the SMG Home & School Club must raise almost $40,000 (which is roughly $80 per student at SMG) to support these programs and activities, and we cannot do it alone!

See if your employer donation matches
Many companies love to give back to the community, and have a donation matching program. All you have to do is fill out some paperwork, turn it in to your employer with proof of your donation, and your employer will send a check to the SMG Home & School Club matching your initial donation – which results in DOUBLE!
