Mary Lyon gave so much to all of us, and the world, by founding Mount Holyoke in 1837. Most of us have heard the story of how Mary went around with her green velvet bag to collect the funds needed to create Mount Holyoke. This tradition of philanthropy in support of Mary Lyon’s inspirational mission has been passed down for generations, and now it is up to us to keep Mary’s mission going.
Thank you to all those who have given, and who continue to give, to The Mount Holyoke Fund. Your support helps to provide new generations of brilliant, passionate women leaders a world-class educational experience like no other.
Throughout FebruMary, Mary has issued a number of fun challenges to help inspire us to give back.
