Plan goal: Conduct a comprehensive fundraising campaign

  The largest gift ever received by the College was made in support of Mount Holyoke's new science center. An anonymous alumna made a pledge of $10 million toward this project, making possible the "green" Kendade Hall, the hub of the new center. Marion Craig Potter '49 pledged $5.5 million to the science project, representing the second largest gift in the history of the College. Kendade's dramatic atrium, shown here, is named for Potter.
Thanks to the generosity of more than 23,000 donors--alumnae, parents, and friends of the College--the comprehensive fundraising campaign called for in The Plan for Mount Holyoke 2003 has been a major success story. With trustees Harriet Levine Weissman '58 and Eleanor Graham Claus '55 as its national cochairs, the Campaign for Mount Holyoke College: Advancing Our Legacy of Leadership was launched in October 1998 with a goal of raising $200 million in gifts and pledges. It exceeded this goal and then some. The Plan provided a focus for developing the campaign's goals: shoring up MHC's endowment; increasing levels of giving to the Alumnae Fund/Annual Funds in support of annual and day-to-day operations; raising funds to create or enhance music, art, and science facilities; and launching innovative program initiatives. Each of these goals has been met, and the campaign surpassed its $200-million overall goal in late December 2001. In March of 2002, the College's board of trustees voted to expand the campaign goal to $250 million. To date, gifts and pledges totaling more than $232 million (as of April 30, 2003) have been made to the campaign.
