Announcing the LA GIVES FOR SMITH CHALLENGE
Our goal: 35% participation in the Smith Fund by June 30!
Last year, 30% of the members of the Greater Los Angeles area supported the college with donations through the Smith Fund. We think we can do better!
Did you know that the percentage of alumnae who support Smith is one of the metrics used in publications that rank educational institutions? In Smith's fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, only 30% of all alumnae donated. Our goal is to be better than this average! By supporting the Smith Fund, alumnae can have a direct impact on these rankings.
FINAL CHALLENGE RESULTS: THANK YOU TO THE 31% WHO DONATED! WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.
To donate, select any option from the drop-down menu in the Smith Fund section of the giving form (or select "LA Gives").
Here are some statistics you may find interesting:
