Thank you for a fabulous FebruMary!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 4th annual FebruMary! In 28 days, we celebrated our amazing community and toasted our fearless founder for her 220th birthday through puzzles, photo campaigns, fundraising challenges and even finger puppets! (Mary even found her way to Antarctica!)

Thanks to the 2,865 alumnae who participated in this challenge, this was our most successful FebruMary to date! Together we raised over $340,000 for The Mount Holyoke Fund, a powerful statement of support for Mount Holyoke's mission.

Our challenges had some of the closest competition we have ever seen. Earlier this month we celebrated the classes of 1972, 1984, 1994, 2005, and 2010 and 2011 on their success in the 24-hour Decade Challenges. We are now happy to announce the winner of our New Donor Challenge, the Class of 1994, who brought in an incredible 125 new fiscal year 2017 donors this month, a new all-time record for FebruMary! Check out this infographic for even more information about the impact of FebruMary.
