Why Give?


because we owe our success to you

One of the things Hollins does best is instill in our students the belief they can do anything. More than anything else, a Hollins education offers students the chance to transform and change, both themselves and the world around them. From sub-Saharan Africa to suburban America, Hollins women are making the world a better place.

Your gift to Hollins has a direct impact on students’ abilities to learn and experiment, grow, and thrive.

The Hollins Fund supports student scholarships, faculty salaries, and helps address urgent needs.
  • The backbone of Hollins is her students and faculty. With your annual gift, you support the quality education Hollins students deserve.
The endowment provides a solid foundation for the future.
  • Your gift to our financial base, the unrestricted endowment, gives Hollins the flexibility to respond quickly to timely opportunities or changing demands of today’s academic environment.
  • Other endowment gifts provide scholarships for students, funds for faculty research, and more.
Gifts to capital needs support campus growth and maintenance of historic buildings.
  • The historic campus needs constant upkeep and loving care, and today’s students need amenities like wireless dorms. Your gift keeps Hollins growing while maintaining her unique history.
Alumnae participation by giving counts in college rankings.
  • The higher the alumnae participation rate, the higher the indication that alumnae are satisfied with the education they received. For this reason, alumnae who believe their small gifts won’t count — especially in an environment where millions are being raised — are wrong. Every gift counts and is a vote for Hollins’ commitment to single-sex education.
