How to Give to Smith
All donations made by class members each year automatically count toward the participation rate and class gift amount, no matter how small or large. There is no separate “class gift” fund that you need to designate. We have identified the following as our class fundraising priorities:
The Smith Fund
The Smith Fund sustains the academic innovation, global education, scholarships, and resources that make our alma mater exceptional.
Class of 1974 Endowed Scholarship Fund
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor from our class, we are excited to announce The Class of 1974 Endowed Scholarship Fund as part of the class’s 50th reunion gift. To direct your contribution to our class-endowed scholarship fund, specify “Class of 1974 Endowed Scholarship Fund” when you make your gift.
Emergency Fund for Students of Color
Members of the Class of 1974 started the Emergency Fund for Students of Color at the 25th reunion in 1999. To direct your donation to this fund, specify “Emergency Fund for Students of Color” when you make your donation.
