Support WFI

The Center is supported by generous gifts from alumnae (and their families and friends), matching gifts from donors' employers and various grants. Corporate partners including Goldman Sachs, Citigroup Foundation, the Harold Grinspoon Charitable Foundation, Oppenheimer Funds, and the Starr Foundation have also supported WFI.

WFI wishes to thank all of its donors, on- and off-campus collaborators, and visiting speakers for helping to make WFI a success. We also wish to express our appreciation for all Smith students and alumnae whose positive feedback and commitment to WFI programs make our efforts worthwhile.

Partnerships Make Programs Possible

By providing Smith students with a range of credit and noncredit educational courses, hands-on activities and employment opportunities, WFI has made a significant impact on students' understanding of entrepreneurship, investing, personal finance and philanthropy, as well as practical knowledge of leadership and teamwork.

Over the years WFI has received an overwhelmingly positive response from students, alumnae, college/university professors and administrators, as well as the local and national media. Every gift, no matter how small, ensures that we are able to continue to provide free courses, workshops and experiential learning opportunities for the Smith community.

Make a Gift

We thank you for your financial support of the Center for Women and Financial Independence. The generosity of our donors is what sustains us and is an affirmation that it is essential for young women to become financially literate. Your gift will help us to continue to provide this crucial component of a woman's education at Smith.
