Holiday Shopping

Giving to the SMC Scholarship Fund has never been easier…or more fun!

You can now contribute to our scholarship fund while you do your holiday shopping!  SMC has successfully negotiated with Santa Monica Place, The Grove and The Americana by Brand an agreement which will benefit a scholarship fund for SMC students.

How do I do it?  After shopping, dining or going to the movie at these malls, just show your receipts at the Concierge Services desk and tell them you are supporting Santa Monica College.  The donations received through this program will support the SMC Scholarship Fund to benefit our students. 

Here are the details:

Santa Monica Place
Will donate 5% of all purchases (up to $50,000) made between December 1st and December 31st at all stores and restaurants in the mall.

The Grove and The Americana by Brand
Will donate 5% of all purchases (up to $100,000) made between November 22nd and December 24th at stores, restaurants and movie theaters in these two malls.


Chances are that most of us will be shopping and dining out at one of these malls during this festive season.  Let’s make the most of our holiday shopping dollars and support scholarships for our SMC students!  Please contact Carol Hamilton at Hamilton_carol@smc.edu with any questions.


Thank you for your support.  Happy Holidays!
