Go for the GOLD

If you graduated from Hobart and William Smith in the past 10 years, you're invited to become a member of a select group of volunteers known as GOLD - Graduates of the Last Decade.

GOLD volunteers serve as representatives to the Colleges, financially and socially engaging others who have also recently graduated in an effort to help bolster participation in The Fund for Hobart and William Smith.

"Being a GOLD Volunteer is my small way of giving back to William Smith, because I have benefited from the numerous opportunities made available by the contributions of alums before me," says Katy Goodrich '08. "It has also been a great way to reconnect with classmates and friends."

To sustain and invigorate The Fund for Hobart and William Smith, alums like Goodrich solicit classmates throughout the year while continuously educating them on the importance of giving back. As active members of the alumni and alumnae community, GOLD alums play a central role in the future of the Colleges.

To learn more or become a GOLD volunteer, contact Assistant Director of Annual Giving Skylar Beaver '08 at or (315) 781-4068.
