About

Passionate about the future of our planet? Gifts directed to the Sustainability Fund support our efforts to maintain and innovate green practices throughout campus so that our footprint remains small as our legacy grows even stronger.

Your support of Smith's sustainability efforts include...

  • Our student-led community garden
  • Smith’s mission to offer 55% plant-based entrees in dining halls by 2025
  • Compost buckets in every kitchen
  • Food in the dining halls sourced from local farms for over 50 years
  • The Food Rescue Network, a student-led organization to redirect food waste to a local rescue kitchen
  • Reusable water bottles provided to first-year students at Central Check-In
  • Construction of our newest building, Kathleen McCartney Hall, which will be completed in 2025, which will have a living roof and be one of the most sustainable buildings on campus
  • Our commitment to carbon neutrality by 2030
  • Programming held at MacLeish Field Station
  • Our geo-thermal energy project, which will replace the college’s aging fossil-fuel-fired steam heating system with a state-of-the-art, electrically powered geothermal system
  • and more!

It's our final week! June 30 is on Sunday

Thank you to everyone who has already participated with a gift - and to those of you who may be about to do so!

Our campaign runs through midnight Pacific (3 a.m. Eastern) on Sunday night. It will take a week or so to complete gift entry, and this site will continue to be updated until all gifts are counted. Stay tuned for our final results!
