Two thoughts:

1) Mount Holyoke and the Cleveland Alumnae Club gave me a substantial four-year scholarship over 50 years ago, and I give each year in thanks and to help others go to MHC.

2) At a reunion, one of the even older alums said what Mount Holyoke had given her was “competence and confidence” - competence in her major field of study, and the confidence that since she could master that field she could conquer almost anything. ‘Tis a great feeling, to be carried throughout life!

Thank you so much for being a part of such a wonderful oasis for women! Your continuous involvement makes my experience here the incredible experience that I will treasure forever. As a transfer student, I recognize how amazing this institution, the student body, and alum support network is! Truly an individual and special place.

I am a senior right now preparing to graduate, and I cannot imagine the feelings I will have thinking back on this school many years from now. I can only imagine how grateful I would be thinking about the experience I had here. Whatever it is you think about it, thank you for keeping Mount Holyoke in your head. Know that what you contribute continues to help make this college a beautiful, growing community.

Thank you SO MUCH for your kind contributions; without your help, my experience at Mount Holyoke would not have been possible. I am a graduating senior and I am so excited to become an alumna so that I may start to give back to my alma mater. The kindness that I have received is inspiring! Throughout the last four years, I have made really amazing friends, been taught by outstanding faculty, and I have traveled to places that I would not have without the help of truly amazing support from alumnae like you. I am truly, truly lucky! Mount Holyoke forever shall be!
I can’t thank you enough! Without your donation I would have never had the opportunity to get where I am right now: a curious young person who developed her talents, skills and interests in directions she never thought possible. My journey started from a small post-communist country in Eastern Europe, and here I am graduating from Mount Holyoke and about to pursue a PhD in one of the most prestigious engineering programs in the United States. I can’t express how grateful I am to you for helping me shape my future through such an incredible journey at Moho. My only wish is to continue this tradition and help other prospective students, the same way you helped me! I will always be grateful to you! Thank you!
Dear Alum,
The more I get involved in the school and especially the sciences here, the more I realize just how much your support makes so many of my great experiences possible.  As someone who really enjoys working in a lab and getting to have the hands-on science experience I’ll need in the future, I am very grateful for your contributions to the school. I really appreciate the spirit of paying your education forward that your contribution represents and hope to be able to contribute similarly some day.  
Thank you so much!

Thank you for, first, being a part of my MHC experience and second, for helping find my dreams.  Without your help, I would have never had the opportunity to begin research in Autism and find friendships that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much for making MHC mohome for me and for helping to uphold traditions like M&Cs; I <3 M&Cs.
Words can truly never express my gratitude for everything you’ve done to make my MHC experience such an amazing one!
With much love!

As a current faculty member and also alum of the College, THANK YOU for supporting our wonderful alma mater. Alumnae support is crucial to the College and enabled my family to pay for me to attend Mount Holyoke. Financial aid enables us to accept diverse, excellent students without regard for their ability to pay. Thank you.
