Cornerstone Society

The Cornerstone Society recognizes the exceptional commitment of graduates, families and friends who, through their annual gifts of $1,837 or more, provide a foundation of leadership support. The entry level for recent alumnae (one to 10 years out) begins at $100.

The combined support of Cornerstone Society members accounts for more than 80% of the dollars that sustain Mount Holyoke as a top liberal arts college. As part of this group, which represents just 10% of donors each year, you can play a critical role in advancing the mission of the College.
