Annual Fund

The Annual Fund benefits every aspect of the College. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund ensure the College possesses the resources necessary to provide an exceptional education and transformative opportunities to students. The Annual Fund enhances life and learning at the College through scholarships and financial aid grants for deserving students—underwriting the Elizabeth Seton Library’s collection of publications and online resources, funding student life and athletic programs, and maintaining the College’s historic buildings and grounds.

The Annual Fund is impactful because of the generous and sustained support of the College’s alumnae/i and friends. In the 2019-2020 fiscal year, the Annual Fund hit a new fundraising record. Supporters rallied together in response to a challenge grant to propel the Annual Fund to over $2,100,000—equipping Mount Saint Vincent with the resources needed to respond to the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Be a part of this success—every gift makes a difference. Give online or contact the Office of Alumnae/i Relations and Giving to learn how you can contribute to the Annual Fund and support future generations of Mount students. The leadership of volunteers—from Class Fund Agents to members of the President’s Associates and the G.O.L.D. giving society—is integral to the Annual Fund.

Class Fund Agents

Class Fund Agents are the primary fundraisers for each class. Fund Agents write letters and make phone calls to motivate their classmates to support the Mount. They are a vital part of the College’s fundraising efforts. If you wish to volunteer your talent and time as a Class Fund Agent, contact the Office of Alumnae/i Relations and Giving.

The President’s Associates

Established in 2001, the President’s Associates giving society is comprised of donors committed to giving $1,000 or more to the College each year. Their importance to the College cannot be overstated. Last year, President’s Associates represented only 20% of the total number of Annual Fund donors, while their contributions totaled nearly $1,588,820—75% of Annual Fund revenue.

Every year, the President’s Associates make the conscious decision to invest in the College’s programs, mission, and most importantly, students. They know that a Mount education has the power to transform a life, and that belief—that generous conviction—is felt and appreciated by every person on campus.

Members of the President’s Associates receive an invitation to several events at the College throughout each year, including the annual Ad Laudem Dei awards reception, the President’s Christmas Party, and the annual Student Research Symposium.
