"Double Your Gift" Match from Grace Richardson '60 Motivated Simmons Community to Increase Support

Thank you for rising to the challenge!(July 13, 2012) -- The "Double Your Gift" match challenge from Grace Richardson '60 motivated the Simmons community to rise to challenge with generous year-end support. Together we raised over $550,000 in the month of June!

Alumnae/i and friends doubled their impact and increased support for key initiatives that will ensure students, now and in the future, receive the very best that Simmons has to offer. Support for The Simmons Fund helps to create a student-centered environment where research and scholarship can thrive.

"Your contributions directly impact our students and the future of this great institution. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, and Grace thanks you, for joining us," says Marianne Lord, vice president of advancement.
