Give the Gift of Smith

We are challenging the Smith community to raise 3,100 donations in 31 days. Your December donation will go directly toward financial aid. 

"I have never seen a community so willing to love and accept everyone," says Eleanor Wu ’26 about Smith. "We are the future and the future depends on us. It’s a team effort that can only be achieved as a collective." Your gift to the Smith Fund—regardless of size—combined with others will support Eleanor and other Smith students as they realize their dreams.
