European alumnae challenged to “Stand and Be Counted”


Smith College recently challenged European alumnae to raise their percentage of participation in making gifts to the college. The Europe: Stand and Be Counted challenge aims to double European alumnae participation from last year’s 15% to 30% by March 23.

To reach the goal, 145 more Smithies in Europe need to give. Many alumnae have already made gifts and are encouraging their classmates to give to ensure that Smith has the resources to provide its students with a truly global education.

A gift to the challenge can fund:

  • Financial aid, so that Smith can attract the best possible students from around the world and ease their financial burden;
  • Study-away opportunities that open the world to students and expose them to cultures different from their own;
  • Internships that provide students with valuable real-world experience;
  • And much more!

Participate in Europe: Stand and Be Counted and encourage your friends to give.  Every gift matters!  The deadline to participate in the challenge is March 23, 2013, at midnight Smith time.
