    While the 2014-2015 school year is still fresh in our memory, we would like to express our gratitude to all the Gonzaga moms who have contributed their time and talent, in ways large and small, to the success of the mission of the Gonzaga Mothers’ Club! Through your efforts, the GMC was able to give Father Planning an additional $25,000 at the end of the year making our grand total contributed to Gonzaga this year$226,885!

    • We raised $6,515 for the Modern Language Department at the International Food Fair.

    We reached out to welcome all Gonzaga moms and had many new Moms attend meetings and registered over 500 GMC members!  We mentored new moms, threw Get Acquainted Parties, and kept everyone informed with a wonderful monthly e-newsletter. 

    We fed students, faculty and parents wonderful light dinners and snacks throughout the year. We hosted receptions, events, and parties includingThe Purple Polar Express Gala which was the highlight of our year.

    We hope that you had some fun and met new friends, and that you will continue to participate in events next year.  We could not have been successful without your dedication and support. Thank you!

    With gratitude,
    The 2014-2015 GMC Executive Board
