About

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING SMITHIES LIKE...

EVERY GIFT HAS POWER

You have the power to make a difference in a student's life with a gift to The Smith Fund.

Your gifts have tremendous value. They support student passions. They inspire us to dream big. They sustain the facilities and programs that make Smith exceptional. Most important, they equip Smithies with an education that, as Sophia Smith envisioned, gives them the power to do “the greatest good to the greatest number.”

JOIN THE MOVEMENT

We hope that you will join the movement by making a donation to The Smith Fund on National Philanthropy Day – November 15.

On this one day, we aim to raise $1 million from 2,000 Smith alumnae, parents and friends. We need your help to get us there. Your gifts empower Smith students to change the world.

Please make your Smith Fund donation here on November 15, or call us at 1-800-241-2056, option 1.

THANK YOU!


*All gifts made on this site before November 15 will count toward this day-of-giving challenge.

Choose from one of six designations to make your gift today:

The Smith Fund (General)



The Smith Fund is a driving force on campus. It sustains all that makes Smith exceptional and equips Smithies to realize their power for good. When you make a general donation to The Smith Fund, you powerfully and imminently impact Smith by helping us meet our most urgent needs.

Essential Smith



Being a Smithie means experiencing a thriving and diverse campus life. Donations to Essential Smith fund the financial aid of countless international, non-traditional, and financially disadvantaged students who make the Smith experience so meaningful. They also support the facilities and student organizations that make our community special. With your support, Smith's remarkable student body can continue to flourish on campus and beyond.

Inclusive Smith



Smith’s community flourishes when it is as rich and diverse as the world itself. When you give to Inclusive Smith, you support initiatives that engage, connect, and embrace underrepresented students. More importantly, you help create the shared sense of belonging that makes Smith—and Smithies—strong.

Global Smith



Smith women impact the world at home and abroad every single day. By funding Global Smith, you facilitate the unique learning opportunities and internationally focused programming that prepare Smithies to affect change wherever life takes them.

Resourceful Smith (Neilson Library)



A hub of activity on campus, Neilson Library is a unifying space where teaching, learning, and community collide. Smith is in the midst of advancing Neilson for 21st century students with extensive renovations led by acclaimed designer Maya Lin. Be part of this exciting initiative by giving to Resourceful Smith.

Ada Comstock Scholarship



Throughout her life, Ada Louise Comstock 1897 demonstrated her commitment to the education of women. Donations to Ada Comstock Scholarship support the financial aid of a diverse group of women who faced the interruption of their education and have come to Smith to complete their experience. With your support, these remarkable students, ranging in age from their 20s to their 60s, can have the opportunity to fulfill their potential as part of the Smith community.
Updates
9 p.m. Eastern Update

The Smith Fund office is now closed, but you can bet we'll be watching closely from home tonight! 


We will do a final update tomorrow morning with gift activity that happens on the Smith College giving form overnight, so even though you may see "final numbers" tonight at midnight Pacific Time, please know that we will be adding to that total in the morning to make sure that everyone who intended to be counted, is represented in the final figures.


Thank you for your continued support.
