The Alumni Fund helps every student every day. Yours is a gift with an immediate and lasting impact — supporting every core component of the Williams experience. Each year, gifts from thousands of Ephs remain at the heart of our efforts to sustain our great college and ensure that Williams continues to invest in its extraordinary students and faculty.
Over 1,600 volunteers raised more than $10 million from 16,000 alumni in 2011-2012 for the Alumni Fund. Williams also reached the gold standard again with an overall participation rate of 62.5%. Click here to read some student comments of “Ephpreciation” for all your generosity and support.
Your Alumni Fund gift:
- provides full access to a Williams education regardless of a student’s ability to pay. Endowed resources cover only about 30% of the College’s financial aid commitment. The Alumni Fund helps make up the difference.
- sustains our long-standing tradition of alumni taking direct responsibility for Williams’ continued success. Since 1821, it’s been Ephs supporting Ephs!
- strengthens the Williams experience for all students and serves as an important example of appreciation and giving back, reinforcing values which will follow them beyond the Purple Valley.
