First Challenge Met!

Mary Beth Berkes ’75 is so excited for Alverno’s future that she’s challenging Alverno alumnae, students, faculty, staff and friends to show up in a big way this year.

When 150 supporters make a gift by Dec. 31, Mary Beth will donate $25,000 to help launch Alverno’s new initiatives.

How will your year-end gift make a difference? Your generosity this holiday season will  

  • Empower the women Alverno serves to achieve their educational, professional and personal goals
  • Benefit our entire community, particularly in the areas of nursing and health care, urban education, mental health and women’s leadership
  • Ensure better leadership in our communities through Alverno graduates
  • Help launch new initiatives that benefit students and our entire community

Every gift, no matter the size, counts!

The deadline is Dec. 31. Don’t wait to make your year-end gift today!
