Double your impact: Take the Founder's Day Challenge, November 8-15

November 4, 2015 at 8:30 AM


Celebrate this Founder's Day by investing in Mount Holyoke. Every dollar* raised from Founder's Day, November 8, through November 15 will be matched 1:1 by a group of generous alumnae, up to $500,000! Make a gift today and change someone's life.

Mary Lyon knew that through rigorous education, women would be empowered to change the world. Requiring $10,000 to open the doors of Mount Holyoke on November 8, 1837, her vision would not have been possible without the support of a community that believed—and invested—in her bold idea.

This year, the College is asking alumnae to invest $10 million through The Mount Holyoke Fund to support the transformational work our students and faculty engage in every day. From Lynk funding for life-changing internships, to cutting-edge faculty research, to keeping our campus a beautiful space to connect and grow, your support means women continue to be empowered to create positive change—locally and globally.

*Includes all online gifts made November 8–15 and snail mail gifts postmarked November 8–15. Excludes pledges and matching gifts.
