Alums & Your Impact
Smith College is a world-class institution because Smithies give their time, talent and treasure. Every dollar you give, social media post you share, club you lead, webinar you host and alum you mentor bolsters our beloved school. In turn, you benefit from the power of the Smith network and our legacy of paying it forward. Maybe it’s your social media post that Smithies are promoting, maybe it’s you that’s the mentee or maybe it’s you that’s listening to a nugget of wisdom on a webinar just when you need it most. If not today, then maybe tomorrow—that’s the beauty of being a Smith alum: you give and you get throughout the years.

“Smith taught me how important making a difference is. I knew I wanted to do something big, but I learned that the essence of doing something big is making a difference, leaving a legacy. At Smith, I saw women lead things. I saw women have big dreams. I saw women being vocal. That was really a transformational journey for me.”

“As a graduate of Smith, I have donated to the annual fundraising every year including the year I graduated. Since I am the first person in my family to go to college and I received financial assistance to attend Smith, I truly believe it is important that I contribute to the fundraising efforts and help the college support other students who are attending Smith.”
The Smith Fund
As a donor to The Smith Fund, you can open up a world of opportunities and help transform lives. Donations at regular intervals make a big difference. Smith Fund donations never go to the endowment—the funds are spent in the year in which they are received. You are the source of Smith’s power.
