Campaign Tops $173.7 Million
"This is quite an achievement in today's economy. It is also a testament to our alumnae's ongoing faith in the importance of sustaining MHC's educational mission. We are always grateful to our donors for investing in MHC but especially so when times are tough," says Leslie Anne Miller '73, board chair and Campaign cochair.
Other Campaign achievements recently celebrated include the fall 2008 dedications of the new residence hall and the outdoor athletic facilities. It is expected that the new dance studios and fitness facility at Kendall Sports and Dance Complex will be completed by fall 2009. A new boathouse is also slated.
Now more than ever, gifts to support Mount Holyoke's commitment to financial aid and faculty support ensure the continuing success of the College. The Annual Fund and the endowment provide critical funds to boths students and faculty.
Gifts to the Annual Fund are delivered directly to the bottom line of the operating budget, providing approximately 10 percent of the budget each year. This year’s goal is $8.9 million.
The Campaign’s top fundraising priority is endowment, with a $175 million goal. To date, more than $90 million in gifts and pledges has been received. Charitable giving will bolster the endowment, guaranteeing the College's strength into the future.
