MSMU Student Giving Society

The MSMU Student Giving Society (SGS) is a group of student leaders dedicated to sharing MSMU traditions, connecting with alumnae, and supporting our culture of philanthropy. In partnership with the Department of Institutional Advancement and the Office of Alumnae Relations, SGS members serve as ambassadors to keep classmates informed, plan student/alumnae engagement activities, recognize and thank current donors, and help grow the Mount’s culture of philanthropy and service.

The date of the first meeting is Thursday, Sept. 23, at 12:00-1:00 pm. You have the option to attend in person at Chalon (Hannon Parlor- food provided!), or over Zoom. Please RSVP here.
