Annual Fund

Cornerstone Program

Leadership Giving
The new Cornerstone Program effective FY 06/07 recognizes alumnae, parents, and friends who make leadership gifts of $1,837 or more annually to the Mount Holyoke College Annual Fund (15th reunion or higher).  For younger alumnae, options begin at $100.

This represents an increase in the entry point for leadership giving, although it marks the first in the program’s 40-year history. Mount Holyoke counts on gifts to the annual fund to cover approximately 10 percent of its annual operating budget, a standard percentage among our peers.
