Simmons College wants YOU to Make Your Mark

March 30, 2016

Alumnae/i and Friends are encouraged to make their mark on March 30.

On Wednesday, March 30, members of the Simmons community will come together for “Make Your Mark,” the school's first-ever day of giving. This important day of philanthropy is a chance for alumnae/i and friends to make their mark to help support our students both in the classroom and on the field.

The goal is to inspire all of our alumnae/i, parents, and friends to show their Simmons spirit on March 30 by making a gift and spreading the word to their friends on social media using #mysimmons.

“It doesn't matter if you live near or far from the heart of Boston – you can still be involved. We need as many alumnae/i and friends to participate as possible,” said Marianne Lord, Vice President of Advancement at Simmons College. 

Participants don’t have to be on campus to celebrate. This 24-hour event will be sprinkled with fun online activities and events for the school's social followers. Look out for social media takeovers by beloved faculty members, giving challenges to win fun prizes, and more!


In partnership with the school’s Match Madness campaign, every gift made on March 30 can also be credited to an Athletics, Graduate School, or Class Decade team of the donor’s choice. The teams that reach success by March 31 will not only win bragging rights but also a naming opportunity at the new, highly anticipated Daly Field in Brighton, MA.

Stay connected on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram throughout the day using #mysimmons. You can also join the community and Make Your Mark by making a gift
