An anonymous member of our class is challenging us to double her $10,000 forthcoming gift and raise $20,000 for the upcoming March4MHC campaign, which for our class runs from March 4 - 8 (ie, pledges and gifts received or dated between March 4 and 8).

We had such a successful year for our 60th and we didn’t expect to match that amount this year, hence our goal of $225,000. We believe this is an achievable goal but it will take a strong March4MHC response to get there. 

Thanks for everything you all do for Mt. Holyoke as the college continues to provide quality education for outstanding young women, more and more from all over the world displaying a diversity we certainly didn’t experience back in the early 1960s. I know all of you share our enthusiasm for the mission of Mt Holyoke and will join Elli and me as we do all we can to make the March4MHC challenge a success.

To donate, go to the Mt. Holyoke College website []. Then click "GIVE" in the upper right corner of the home page.

The fifth anniversary March4MHC Challenge has started for our class and runs through Friday, March 8, at midnight. 

This week, the MHC community will join together to ensure that current students have the resources needed to lead and succeed. From scholarship aid to academic enrichment to sustainability initiatives and more, your support fuels Mount Holyoke and guarantees that the march — for progress and innovation — continues.


Our bold goal is to engage at least 5,000 donors and unlock $500,000 in challenge funds.


Will you take the challenge and make a gift or pledge this week?


When we come together to support our alma mater via The Mount Holyoke Fund, we uphold the legacy of academic excellence and distinction that defines Mount Holyoke.  


Thank you for ensuring that Mount Holyoke forever shall be!
