About

Welcome to MillsGiving 2019!


If you would like to make a gift after the campaign has ended, please click here. Thank you!

On Tuesday, December 3rd, #MillsCollege will participate in the global Giving Tuesday movement that follows the Thanksgiving shopping weekend and celebrates the season of giving - including giving back to organizations like Mills.

Last year, 213 members of the Mills community came together to raise $42,299 (over 100 more donors and just over $10,000 more raised than in 2017). This year, our goal is 200 donors, in honor of Cyrus Mills' 200th Birthday, and $50,000. Will you help us reach our goal? It's now easier than ever to give - with the tap of a finger! Any mobile smart pay service is available through our GiveCampus campaign page. 

Each act of generosity counts individually, but that power is multiplied when the Mills community join together in giving. A donation of any amount to Mills’ Greatest Need will have an immediate impact where it is needed the most. Make your gift today and inspire your classmates to give as well. We’re offering incentives of Mills swag to encourage you to encourage each other to make a gift. You can learn more about becoming an advocate by clicking here. As an extra incentive, anyone who records a personal plea video (on the "Advocates Tab") will receive a personalized video reply from a current Mills student!

Thank you for making this the best #MillsGiving ever!

Final Results - THANK YOU!

Here’s to a very happy post-#MillsGiving indeed! At $120k and almost 500 donors, you knocked it out of the park yesterday with your generous gifts to Mills. Alumnae/i, parents, staff/faculty, students, and trustees, thank you. You proved that we are STRONG, PROUD, ALL, MILLS! 

And congratulations to a competitive Class of 1992 for coming out on top with the highest number of donors! Class members will be invited to a hosted lunch with President Hillman on campus. That’s not all: in honor of the runner-up and soon-to-Reunion Class of 1990, Mills will serve complimentary champagne at its Reunion class dinner next fall.




Thank you, donors, for making this a great campaign in support of Mills.

To say that this has been an exhilarating day would be an understatement. We would not have reached these heights without your support! Thank you so much for giving, sharing, and making a difference. We look forward to sharing the final results soon. Happy #MillsGiving!

Happy #MillsGiving!

An exciting incentive: lunch with President Hillman!

Happy #MillsGiving eve! Thank you so much to our early donors and advocates. We have a wonderful list of supporters so far including alumnae/i, staff, and faculty (and we've just passed 27% of our 200 donor goal!)


This year we're offering a new and exciting incentive to the class with the most donors. The class at the top of the donor leaderboard at the end of the campaign will receive a hosted lunch on campus with President Hillman. All members of the class who donate during MillsGiving will be invited. If you can't make it to campus you are welcome to invite someone to attend the lunch on your behalf. This is a great opportunity to be on campus with members of your class, to get to know President Hillman and ask her questions about what is happening at Mills today, and to show your support of the College. 


Thank you!
