National Philanthropy Day

On November 15, The Smith Fund beat their goal of raising one million dollars from 2,000 donors in 24 hours. The final numbers: $1,215,665 raised from 2,020 friends!

During this challenge, 88 percent of Smith alumnae, parents and friends shared messages on social media or made matching gift challenges, which made a HUGE difference throughout the day.

And because 2,000 donors answered the call, a generous group of Smithies—Susan May Molineaux ’75, Alix Hoch Laager ’80 and Cynthia Meyn ’86—contributed $200,000. In addition, Cornelia Mendenhall Small ’66, Elizabeth Mugar Eveillard ’69 and Deborah Duncan ’77 matched $250,000, dollar for dollar.

Thank you, friends!
