Double your impact when you support $1 Million for MHC, the five-day, $1,000,000 fundraising campaign launched to provide essential funds to MHC through The Mount Holyoke Fund. Take advantage of an opportunity to leverage our incredible network by joining forces with a global community of students, alumnae, faculty, staff, and friends who are committed to making a difference—at Mount Holyoke and throughout the world.
Why The Mount Holyoke Fund? – What Your Dollars Do
Your dollars are put to work immediately funding the Mount Holyoke places, programs, and experiences that really matter to our community, like preserving our beautiful campus, supporting our incredible faculty, maintaining our state of the art labs, and offering an amazing student experience (complete with M&Cs and Mountain Day!).
Each year, The Mount Holyoke Fund helps donors direct their giving toward many priorities here on the MHC campus. The number one choice for our donors is providing financial assistance to our outstanding students. MHC alumnae and students alike talk about the transformative nature of the Mount Holyoke education—about finding their voice, discovering new talents, working closely with faculty to become experts in their field by the time they leave campus, and forming life-long friendships. Alumnae choose to give back to say “thank you” for the experiences alumnae before them provided, and to pay it forward to future generations.
But this is not the whole story: Giving Through The Mount Holyoke Fund
Why is your gift through The Mount Holyoke Fund so important? Because, when you give to MHC, you invest in the future of our world. You invest in the faculty, the ideas and innovation, and in a culture that encourages women to ask the big questions and supports them in finding the answers. The reality is that women outnumber men in the workforce and in higher education, and we control 60% of the wealth. And despite our ever-growing numbers, we continue to face many of the same challenges that have held women back for decades. Statistics show, however, that students who choose women’s colleges are better prepared to overcome these challenges. Mount Holyoke prepares women to become leaders in their communities. Whether through picking up someone else’s trash, helping to restore the wetlands, or fighting for racial equality, MHC women are ready to make the world a better place.
