                                                                                  S. Mona Sinha '88

Dear GOLD Alum,


As Graduates of the Last Decade (2013 - 2022), please join other New York City alums at the University Club on March 14, 2023, 1 West 54th Street for an evening of giving, connecting, and celebration to benefit the NYC endowed Smith College Scholarship fund.

Our honored speaker will be Mona Sinha, '88 and her talk is entitled, "Achieving Equality: From Policy to Practice." She will discuss the meaning and essentials of active philanthropy in the service of social justice - the vision, strategies and implementation required toward realizing the goal of global gender equality. 


Mona is a founder of the Asian Women's Leadership University, Board Chair of Women Moving Millions, former Board Chair for the ERA Coalition Fund for Women's Equality, and, currently, Global Executive Director of  Equality Now.


To make it easier for you to attend this year we have created a new benefit ticket category ($100), solely for GOLD alums.  We hope you will consider participating at this level and joining us. If you cannot attend in person, perhaps you will consider donating to the NYC endowed Smith Scholarship Fund at the GOLD alum level. 


One hundred percent (100%) of your contribution will go to NYC endowed Smith Scholarship Fund, dedicated to providing critical financial aid to students from the New York area and 100% of your contribution is tax deductible. In addition, each contribution counts as a gift to your Class!

It is a privilege and an honor to welcome S. Mona Sinha ’88, for a rare evening to benefit the Smith College Club of NYC’s Scholarship Fund.
