Dear Members of the Smith College Community,
I am writing to express my gratitude to all at Smith who have contributed to the college's United Way campaign this year. Thanks to you, the Smith United Way campaign recently reached and surpassed its $150,000 goal.
Funds raised through the Smith College campaign go to the United Way of Hampshire County's (UWHC) LIVE UNITED 365 Capital Campaign, contributing to its $1.25 million goal this year. Your donations enable UWHC to provide vital support to a wide network of local agencies committed to improving the lives of countless people in need in our community.
As in previous years, Smith has again demonstrated its leadership in the community as the largest institutional donor to UWHC, providing more than 10 percent of the annual campaign total.
I feel great pride in the Smith community on this occasion, for the compassion its members have shown for helping people in need, and for their recognition of the importance of investing in our host community.
Thank you to all who have generously contributed to the Smith United Way campaign.
President Carol T. Christ
