THANK YOU! What an amazing year we had!
Last fiscal year (July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013), Wellesley’s dedicated and generous community of donors—more than 15,000 alumnae, parents, faculty, staff, and friends—provided the College with more than $42 million in support.
In addition to money raised, our alumnae participation rate also indicated a successful year. The College’s participation rate (the percentage of alumnae who give to Wellesley, regardless of gift size) was higher last year than it’s been in six years. Achieving a participation rate of 49.4 percent is a remarkable point of pride!
But, far beyond records and statistics, this achievement embodies the bonds that unite our alumnae community, generation after generation. Alumnae giving exemplifies to today's students that being part of this extraordinary community means extending your hand to all the Wellesley women who will follow. A few of these wonderful young women wanted the opportunity to say "thank you," and let you know just how much their Wellesley education means to them.
