Your gifts support every day in the life of students, and keep Hollins traditions strong.
The first major gift to Hollins was $5,000 from John and Ann Halsey Hollins of Lynchburg in 1855. In gratitude, the trustrees changed the name of the school to Hollins Institute. Ann Halsey and her husband made the generous gift because they shared Charles Lewis Cocke's belief that young women had as much right to an education as did their brothers.
Where would Hollins be today without the foresight and generosity of the Hollins' in 1855?
Hollins today needs your support — to continue a tradition of excellence in educating young women.
We have identified funds for a $100,000 challenge, to be used as a 1:1 match for new gifts.
And we have 10 days to do it.
Join us and prove that Hollins Rocks!
