Your senior year is your time - your turn to take your first step on Front Quad, bang the pots for Tinker Scares, and enjoy Ring Night, Tinker Day, Founder's Day, Hundredth Night, and of course, your commencement. It's also a time to look forward to your life as a Hollins alumna. You are a Hollins student for four years, but you are a Hollins alumna for life!
Your gift to the Senior Legacy Program goes to the most important thing at Hollins - your fellow students and professors. Your gifts support the Hollins Fund, which directly feeds scholarship dollars, faculty salaries, and more. As you approach the end of your incredible Hollins journey, we hope you will consider giving something back to the institution that has given and will continue to give you so much.
How Much Should I Give?
How Do I Make My Gift?
Honor a Professor, Ring Sister, or Family Member
Celebrate that special person who helped make your Hollins journey by making your gift to the Senior Legacy Program in their honor.
Miss Matty's Circle honors Matty Cocke, daughter of Hollins' founder, president of Hollins from 1901 to 1933, and the first woman to head a college in Virginia. "Miss Matty" led Hollins through a transitional period in academics as, for the first time, the school offered a four-year bachelor of arts program. Miss Matty's Circle recognizes young alumnae who are leadership donors; these donors enjoy full membership in the 1842 Society.
The Marian Wolff Young Society began as a way to recognize the devotion of the alumna of the same name of the class of 1929. Young made a gift to Hollins every year from her graduation until her death in 2008 - nearly 80 years! Each senior who makes a gift to the Senior Legacy Program gains membership in this elite society. Every subsequent year, your annual gift to the Hollins Fund keeps your membership in good standing, and you will be recognized in our annual report on giving.
