About

SMITH COLLEGE IS LEADING WOMEN’S EDUCATION. IT’S TIME TO PROVE IT.

This March, we urge you to participate in All 4 One, Smith’s quest to increase alumnae giving participation by 4 percentage points. All 4 One is not about dollars and cents. It’s about us coming together to become one of the most engaged groups of alumnae donors.

To reach this goal, we need 1,568 alumnae who have not given this year to do so over the course of 31 days in March. That’s 51 new donors per day. We’re asking you to be 1 of them.

WHY SHOULD YOU GIVE?

The reason is simple: there’s power in numbers. The alumnae giving participation rate directly affects Smith’s national rankings and, in turn, each of us.

BE 1 OF 51

Please make your donation today!

The Final Numbers: A House by House Count

The final gifts have been tallied and the results show that Smithies are always up for a challenge. Not only did we beat our original goal, but we exceeded our extended goal as well. 'THANK YOU' to everyone who participated!

We've updated the House by House donor list so that you can see how well represented your house was in the month of March.  (see below)

If you have any feedback on the All 4 One campaign that you would like us to know (good or bad), please feel free to drop us a line at thesmithfund@smith.edu using the subject line: All 4 One Feedback.

This is no joke-- We did it!

Yet again Smithies have risen to the challenge and helped surpass our goals-- even our extended goal!

Thank you to each and every one of you who donated, offered a matching donation or challenge, shared the message, or followed along, offering words of encouragement. Your support is inspiring!

We are still calculating the final total, but it is safe to say that we met the challenge(s) and have increased our participation percentage significantly. As we finish up gift entry we will add additional offline gifts and announce the grand total early next week.

Thank you again for your commitment to our great institution and to helping the next generation of Smith graduates. Smithies truly embody All 4 One!

A Third Challenge And A NEW GOAL!

Earlier today we sent the following message to Smith Fund non-donors.  We are seeing a lot of success with All 4 One so a third challenge was announced that pushes us even further than we thought possible. 

With exactly one week left in the campaign, we need everyone to be talking about and sharing the challenge message so that we can hit our NEW goal and secure an additional $50,000!

Announcing an incredible third challenge for All 4 One: The Smith Fund Participation Challenge!
 
In celebration of her 30th Reunion this spring, Cynthia Meyn '86 is thinking BIG. She will give $50,000 to Smith if we can surpass our original goal and secure a total of 1,875 gifts to Smith from alumnae who haven't yet donated this year. Her challenge is in honor of the first graduating class, the Class of 1875!


This is an exciting opportunity for us to come together for Smith in a huge way. If 601 alumnaewho haven't yet supported Smith this year contribute any amount by March 31 at 9 p.m.Eastern, we will be able to celebrate earning THREE matches totaling $125,000! 


Will you help? Now's the time--please donate today! If you prefer, you can give over the phone by calling The Smith Fund at 1-800-241-2056, option 1.

As always, thank you for your generosity and for helping spread the message of the importance of alumnae participation.

Another Successful Challenge!

Once again you’ve done it.  Smithies rose to the challenge and helped us secure $25,000 from a generous member of the Class of 1991.

With your help, we secured more than 392 gifts in just one week—moving our alumnae participation percentage by 1%.  If we keep on this track, we should meet our overall campaign goal early!

Thank you to all of YOU who have donated, become an advocate, created a challenge or matching donation, or shared the campaign thus far.  Please keep encouraging your classmates to give and help us meet our 1,568 new donor goal by March 31.

Why is participation so critical?

Yesterday the following email went out to all Smith Fund non-donors explaining why participation is critical. Please share this important information with your classmates.  All contributions from new alumnae donors, even small gifts, help to move the participation number.

We all know that giving to an organization to which we feel connected is a great way to show our support. We do it because we believe in their mission and the myriad ways in which they positively impact our lives and the lives of others.

Although you may not always think of our beloved alma mater this way, Smith College is a 501(c)(3) charity and relies on philanthropic support from alumnae. If, like I do, you believe in Smith's mission to educate Women for the World, I hope you will join me today with a donation--of any size--in support of Smith.

Your annual donation--at any dollar level--matters. Here's why:

1. Publications like U.S. News & World Reportrank Smith each year against other schools. Alumnae participation factors directly into these rankings and potential Smithies use this information to decide if they will apply. We want our ranking to be as high as possible so that we continue to attract the best and brightest women to campus.

2. Grant-making organizations often look at the percentage of alumnae giving before deciding if they will support the institution. It's essential that we show these organizations that we invest in Smith and they should too.

3. Each year, gifts of $100 or less total more than $500,000--of which a significant amount is directed to essentials like financial aid.

During All 4 One: The Smith Fund Participation Challenge, our goal is to boost alumnae giving by 4% by March 31. Meeting this challenge demonstrates our commitment to Smith and Smith's commitment to excellence. 

Giving is easy and right now your gift means more! Your gift of any size can help us secure $25,000 from a generous member of the Class of 1991. We're 286 donors away from meeting this goal. We're so close; say you're "All 4 One!"

Best wishes,

Just Announced: A Second Challenge!

This morning we sent the following email message to all Smith Fund non-donors.  Please share this information with your friends and classmates to help us secure $25,000! 

Announcing a second challenge for All 4 One: The Smith Fund Participation Challenge!

A generous member of the Class of 1991 will give $25,000 to Smith if we can move the alumnae donor participation percentage by 1% in one week. Similar to the last challenge, this means we need 392 alumnae who haven't yet given to The Smith Fund this year to make a contribution of any size in just seven days.

This challenge ends on Tuesday, March 22, atnoon (Eastern), so please donate today! If you prefer, you can give over the phone by calling The Smith Fund at 1-800-241-2056, option 1.

Many thanks,

Maria Held
Smith Fund Director

P.S. Due to the current All 4 One campaign, we are experiencing unusually high gift activity. If my message has crossed with your donation, thank you for your generosity!

We Did It!

Smithies are incredible. 

We were challenged to increase our alumnae participation rate by 1% (392 donors) in 1 week and we CRUSHED it.  The challenge was met 15 hours early!

By noon on Friday, March 11, (the official challenge end date/time), The Phyllis Culbertson Draper ‘53 challenge had secured 492 new donors—exactly 100 more than the goal. Truly remarkable.

A huge 'Thank You' to all who participated with a gift, as well as those who were already donors but shared the message and encouraged others.

We still have a long way to go to meet the overall campaign goal of 1,568 donors in the month of March, but we're well on our way thanks to all of you and your incredible generosity

Did you know? Smith Fund Gifts Are Important To The Admissions Process.

Noriko Sato Ward '88 shares how gifts to The Smith Fund have an effect on Admissions.

At Smith, we educate women for leadership. It's that simple.

As a Smith admissions volunteer, I have the pleasure of meeting with prospective and current students. They are smart, vibrant and talented young women. These students go to Smith from around the world and arrive in Northampton from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. This diversity makes our campus stronger--and it would not be possible without your support.

Some facts to share with you: close to 20 percent of Smith students are the first in their families to attend a four-year college. Last year The New York Times ranked Smith as one of the most economically diverse colleges in the U.S. And 60 percent of Smith students receive financial aid, with the average annual award totaling $37,000.

These are incredible points of pride for an institution that has long been ahead of the national discussion about college affordability and access to education. We are able to be generous--and, as a result, attract the best and brightest women--because we have put our alma mater as a philanthropic priority. 

I write to you today to consider making a gift to The Smith Fund, in whatever amount you are able, and show your support for the academic ambitions of the remarkable students. Gifts to The Smith Fund help the college meet the full documented need of all admitted students.

Throughout the month of March with the All 4 One challenge, we are calling on alumnae to do two things: help increase the participation in annual giving by four percent and to support a robust financial aid program. Increasing our participation in annual giving adds tremendous value to a Smith degree, and raises our status among our peers. Collectively, our gifts have the power to transform the lives of young women who otherwise would not have access to a high-quality college education.

Please, if you have not yet made your gift to The Smith Fund this year, join the All 4 One challenge. Let's become one of the most engaged groups of alumnae donors and help ensure that Smith remains the preeminent source for the women leaders the world so desperately needs.

Thank you,

Noriko Sato Ward '88 

Chair, Network of Alumnae Admission Coordinator

Did you see? Our first Challenge!

Did you see that we have our first Challenge? Earlier today we sent an email (see text below) to Smith Fund non-donors. Please share this message with your Smith friends, family and colleagues-- you never know who might still be a non-donor and able to help us meet this challenge. 

Non-donors in the Class of 1984, will count for both the matching gift (from Catherine Carr Lincoln) AND the challenge.  That's awesome!


We are thrilled to announce that Smith has received a philanthropic challenge to help us meet our 1,568 donor goal for All 4 One: The Smith Fund Participation Challenge.

Phyllis Culbertson Draper '53 will give $50,000 to Smith if we can move the participation percentage by 1% in one week. That means we need 392 alumnae who haven't yet given to The Smith Fund this year to make a contribution of any size in just seven days.

Our deadline for this challenge is Friday, March 11, at noon (Eastern). Please donate today and encourage others to do the same. You can also give over the phone by calling The Smith Fund at 1-800-241-2056, option 1.
