About

THE HEART OF SMITH 

NEILSON LIBRARY: WHERE TEACHING, LEARNING AND COMMUNITY UNITE

More than just a building, Neilson Library is where ideas take flight. This is why it is so critical that Neilson keep up with the needs and expectations of students and scholars today and in the future. We are in the midst of an extensive library renovation project led by acclaimed designer Maya Lin that will embody Smith’s bold vision for the 21st century, creating new opportunities for intellectual exploration, innovation and discovery.

We invite you to be a part of this exciting project by donating during the month of June. Gifts will stretch far beyond new desks and bookshelves. They’ll create a space that informs, inspires and unites us all.

LET'S POWER THE NEW NEILSON TOGETHER.

Please give as generously as you can today!


Choose a designation for your gift (optional):

Resourceful Smith

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.

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.

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 20's to their 60's, can have the opportunity to fulfill their potential as part of the Smith community.

Stay Tuned for Final Results!

Thanks to the support of alumnae, parents, and friends of Smith College like you, we have officially met the $1,000,000 challenge from a generous alumnae in the class of 1954 because 2,376 donors made a gift during the month of June!

While The Heart of Smith 2019 campaign officially ends on June 30, staff at Smith will be busy tallying all of the fiscal year-end gifts for awhile. Thanks to all of you, we have seen a tremendous amount of gift activity both here and offline, so it will take a bit to get us caught up. 

Please keep checking back—we will update this site once we work through the gift entry process. We anticipate that we will be able to announce our final totals in a few weeks.

Thank you to everyone who supported The Smith Fund in June, and throughout our 2018-2019 fiscal year.
