Mary Lyon — the original crowdfunder

By Rachel Nix ’20 on November 8, 2018 at 11:27 AM

This Founder’s Day, we celebrate Mary Lyon, a pioneer in women’s education. Her vision and conviction inspired the founding of Mount Holyoke College, the first institution of higher education for women. Today we commemorate Mary and her tireless work to open Mount Holyoke’s doors. Her fierce fundraising efforts were driven by her passionate conviction that women deserved access to higher education. That legacy is now carried on through the students that step on to this campus and pass through the gates into the world ready to lead. It also endures through continued philanthropic support from the community of alumnae, parents and friends who share Mary’s belief that an investment in women’s education is a powerful tool to empower future leaders and innovators.
