As a component of the Stonehill College Fund, all gifts made to the College by alumni from the 10 most recent graduating classes constitute GOLD gifts.

Opportunities are available for GOLD alumni! Support the GOLD Scholarship, stay engaged with Stonehill as a GOLD Giving Volunteer and join the President's Council at a special giving level for GOLD. 

GOLD Scholarship

The GOLD Scholarship is funded through the generosity of recent alumni who have made giving back to Stonehill a priority in their lives.

The scholarship is awarded annually to a rising junior or senior with a strong academic record, demonstrated financial need and a commitment to the Stonehill community.

GOLD giving plays a critical role in helping the College to provide valuable programs and services for current students.

GOLD Giving Volunteers

GOLD Giving Volunteers are members of the 10 most recent graduating classes who commit to make a personal gift to the College each year and to also encourage friends to support Stonehill.

In appreciation of their commitment to Stonehill, GOLD Giving volunteers receive special correspondence from the College and are invited to select Stonehill events throughout the year. There is no minimum gift requirement with GOLD Giving. Every gift is greatly appreciated.

If you are interested in learning more about GOLD Giving or would like more information about becoming a GOLD Giving volunteer, please contact Lisa Richards in the Office of Development.

GOLD President's Council

All gifts to Stonehill make a lasting impact on the daily lives of our students. But certain gifts make a statement, which is why leadership giving is so important. These donors understand that significant private support is critical to our current growth and our future opportunities.

While providing a solid foundation for the College’s future success, leadership gifts make a profound difference and reveal the remarkable power of giving. The President’s Council recognizes donors who give $1,000 or more to the Stonehill College Fund in our fiscal year (July 1-June 30).

In order to encourage recent graduates to consider joining the President’s Council, GOLD membership is offered to those who have graduated from the College within the past ten years and who make annual gifts of at least $500.

What does scholarship support mean to you and your family, and what words of gratitude would you like to share?

If I did not have scholarship support I would not be able to attend Stonehill College. I want to thank my benefactor for allowing me to afford Stonehill College. I could not imagine going to school anywhere else and with your help, I was able to complete four years of school here!

What will be one of your biggest takeaways from your time at Stonehill?

One of my biggest takeaways from my time at Stonehill is that community is important. The Stonehill community is very welcoming and Stonehill has become my home for the last four years. I was able to make friends on campus and they have become my family away from home.

As you reflect on Stonehill College's mission statement, what aspects have resonated most with you during your time at the College?

As I reflect on Stonehill College's mission statement, the aspect that has resonated most with me during my time at College is creating a welcoming community. Since Stonehill has created a welcoming community, I was able to meet friends during my four years at school. Stonehill College was able to be a place where I felt safe and at home.
