Generations of giving from alumni, parents, and friends now covers more than half the full cost of every student’s education. Your own gift to Williams ensures a transformative experience for Ephs today and tomorrow.

The Alumni Fund & Annual Giving

Each year, more than 50 percent of  Williams alumni join together to raise over $13 million for the college. Each and every gift matters, and we pride ourselves on the strong tradition of participation and philanthropy.


Planned Giving

Williams College offers a full range of charitable gift planning services to alumni, parents and friends. The Office of Gift Planning can help you explore a host of gift options that will allow you and your family to make a difference to present and future Eph generations.


For every gift made to the college, donors receive an email notification at the time of the gift and, once a year in January, an emailed, itemized IRS tax receipt summarizing tax deductible giving from the prior calendar year. Our goals are to acknowledge gifts immediately, to eliminate the need for mailing multiple paper receipts, and to fully provide this information when donors need it most, at tax preparation time.

These emails will come from [email protected]. Donors can add a filter to keep these emails from going directly to spam or junk folders. If we don’t have an email address, we’ll mail the receipt to the address on file.  Log in to the Alumni Directory to make sure information is correct. If you need a duplicate receipt for your taxes, please email [email protected]. Call 413-597-4256 with any questions.
