Every Gift Matters

An Update from Campaign Co-Chairs Linda Gill Anderson ’77 and Wendy S. Graham ’85

Inspired. Proud. Energized. Humbled. Grateful. These are a few of the emotions we’ve experienced while traveling the country (and logging on) to engage alumnae, parents, and friends. We are moved by the outpouring of support for our Infinite Horizon campaign and have experienced such joy in being part of this transformational fundraising effort!

Faculty are energized by new academic programs and opportunities for curricular innovation, and they will soon benefit from new faculty housing. Our students are thriving and proud to be a part of a community where growth is happening before their eyes, seeing the Alice Dodge Wallace ’38 Center for the Performing Arts take shape, both inside the former chapel and in a subterranean annex with dance studios, an orchestra practice room, and a studio theatre. 

Gifts to the campaign (including more first-time donations than ever before) have afforded access to an Emma Willard education to more girls from around the country and the world, and philanthropy has facilitated much-needed preservation of the buildings on our breathtaking campus. Our community is being strengthened through expanded student wellness programs and additional counselors; weekly writing workshops and guest poets are being welcomed in the Starzinger Writing Center; and our athletic fields are now adorned with new scoreboards.

At the halfway point of this five-year effort, we see the impact of every gift on our beloved Emma community. Witnessing your philanthropy in action is magnificent! Still, we have big dreams for continued excellence, and our progress is only possible with your continued support. Your gifts will fulfill unmet needs and secure the future of our school and girls’ education. A gift of any amount that is meaningful to you matters and motivates the entire Emma Willard community to continue delivering the exceptional education we experienced and wish for generations of girls to come.
