Celebrating the Campaign

The Making Education Work Campaign ended on June 30, 2015. The Campaign succeeded thanks to all the alumnae/i, faculty, staff, parents, trustees, and friends who participated. More than 16,500 of you contributed nearly 65,000 gifts of cash, pledges, and deferred gifts, such as bequests from trusts and estates.

Everyone in the Simmons community should savor this tremendous achievement, which is changing the future by helping to provide a better and broader Simmons education to those who seek and deserve such a life-changing gift.

Thank you to the alumnae/i and friends who contributed to help Simmons successfully accomplish this ambitious fundraising goal - the largest in the College's history.
