Show your Green & Gold spirit and help your class win an award!
Giving to Hollins is important every year, not just during a reunion year.
As you prepare to graduate, learn the importance of giving back to Hollins through the Senior Legacy Program.
With your gift to the Friends of Athletics, you will help to provide student-athletes the opportunity to develop their potential on the field, acquiring real life skills of teamwork and leadership while obtaining a quality education that is second to none.
Every year, enthusiastic students call alumnae, parents, and friends to tell them why it is so important to make an annual gift to the Hollins Fund, which helps support every aspect of the Hollins experience.
We deeply appreciate our alumnae, parents, and friends who support the Hollins Fund so generously. The next time you get a phone call from a friendly voice at Hollins, it might be a Phonathon student!
The Hollins Fund supports every part of the Hollins experience. Yearly gifts to Hollins help close the gap between what Hollins charges students in tuition and what their education actually costs. Approximately 8 percent of the Hollins operating budget is funded annually by gifts to the Hollins Fund. Maintaining this support is essential to keep Hollins thriving.
Historically, the Hollins Fund has supported important campus needs; contributed significantly to financial aid, which helps students and families afford the costs of achieving one of the finest educations anywhere, and has helped to purchase books for the library, acquire new computers and cutting-edge technologies, and paid for improvements that make our campus facilities more accessible and appealing. The end result is a better learning experience for students.
Leading the way for Hollins.
Honoring the year Hollins was founded, the 1842 Society provides special recognition to alumnae/i, parents, and friends who annually support Hollins at a level of $1,842 or higher. Young alumnae who support Hollins at leadership levels are members of Miss Matty's Circle, and enjoy full membership in 1842 Society. As an 1842 Society donor, you will be invited to special events with the president and trustees and listed in a prominent location in our Annual Report on Giving.
During a reunion year, alumnae commemorate their devotion to Hollins by giving back — often with an increased gift amount. Reunion is also a time when classes focus their fund raising efforts to increase participation. Increased giving and participation will help your class win a Class Award!

As a donor, you can double or even triple the impact of your gift to Hollins, if you or your spouse is employed by a matching gift company. Since 1954, companies have offered this incentive to encourage employees to make donations to non-profits of their choice. You can take advantage of this by picking up a matching gift form from your company's personnel department.
