What is SMAC?

Stillwater Makes a Change, or SMAC, is a student-led philanthropic project at Stillwater High School. Each spring, a Stillwater non-profit organization is selected to be the upcoming year's SMAC beneficiary.

Our History

SMAC began in 2010 by helping one local child through a $5000 gift to the Make-a-Wish foundation. In 2019, we raised $200,000 for Mya's Promise to build an adaptive play structure at Strickland Park. The previous year, we helped hundreds of children and adults with $171,000 gift to Our Daily Bread, Payne county's food and resource center. Over the years, SMAC student leaders have embraced the vision and raised money for at-risk teens, physically and mentally challenged children and adults, families in crisis and community members suffering from hunger and abuse.

 

In 2020, with the help of the Stillwater community and generous sponsors we raised $169,000 for Stillwater Habitat for Humanity!

 

Since its inception in 2010, SMAC has raised over $1,000,000!
