Simmtober Supports and Celebrates Simmons


On the fundraising front, more than 1,934 members of the community
made gifts to Simmons by October 31, exceeding our 1,899 goal!

Although we missed our very ambitious $1.899 million goal by $72,710,
together we set a record for the number gifts made through October: 2,322!
October is "Simmtober" – a month of supporting and celebrating all things Simmons. And everyone in the Simmons community is invited to join in – online and on campus! Throughout October, show your Simmons pride by participating in the extensive Simmtober social media campaign on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram

Simmtober is also about showing your support for Simmons in a very practical way – by making a special gift to The Simmons Fund in honor of John Simmons's birthday. When you do, you'll have a direct impact on academic excellence.

Make your gift today in support of Simmons
