About

Beginning November 29 at 12:00 am, we are asking all Vassar alumnae/i, parents and friends to make a gift of any size. Our goal of 1,000 donations is all about showing the strength and vitality of the Vassar community.  

We are excited to report that a generous, anonymous alumna has pledged to donate $100,000 if we hit our goal of 1,000 donations!

So, make your gift, and encourage others to support #OurVassar by creating a challenge or a match! Use the #OurVassar social media toolkit to share the campaign on social media. Tag your friends, send them a text or give them a call. Help spread the word! 

24 hours. 1,000 donations. 

All gifts will be directed to the Vassar Fund. Your gift strengthens the educational experience that has always been, and continues to be, uniquely Vassar.

In an ever more uncertain world, supporting Vassar is the best investment in the future you can make.

If you have questions about the campaign or making a donation, please call 1-800-443-8196.

*Any gifts received on #GivingTuesday will count toward your reunion class total!

WE'VE HIT OUR SECOND GOAL!! CAN WE KEEP GOING?

WE’VE HIT OUR SECOND GOAL!!! Your generosity allowed us to reach our goal of 1000 donations in 24 hours with hours to spare! 


A small group of generous alumnae/i were so motivated, they offered to give $250 for each gift up to $50,000! This would bring us to 1200 donations! The Vassar alumanae/i, parents, friends and students crushed it, burning through 1200 donations in no time!


An enthusiastic alumnus reminded us we still have a few hours to go in our 24-hour challenge! He has offered to give $100 for EACH gift, no matter the size, up to $30,000!


How far can we take this?? That’s up to you! Give now and help spread the word about the final push of our 24-hour challenge!
