It’s been a fall full of success here at Sweet Briar! The leaves are changing and many new and exciting things are happening! We welcomed back 95 alumnae for Homecoming 2013, where we unveiled the beautiful new wing of the library. What a view; we hope you can make it back to campus to experience this great new Sweet Briar space!
A Young Alumnae phonathon at the home of Hilary Bowie ’12 and Rachel Kaniss ’12 was another great fall success! Eleven Young Alumnae gathered to raise $4,295 in pledges and gifts from 33 classmates! Thanks to their hard work and the hard work of the 43 members of the Young Alumnae Giving Committee, we raised $20,581 from 121 Young Alumnae!
If you have made your gift — THANK YOU! If you are on record with your pledge — THANK YOU! If you are planning on making a gift or pledge, wonderful — DO IT TODAY! Your gift and your participation support the students of today and the Sweet Briar we know and love.

Young Alumnae Giving Co-Chairs
The Young Alumnae Giving program encompasses classes within the first 10 years of graduation (excluding Reunion classes) and calls on them to build on their connection to the College and one another by giving annually to the Sweet Briar Annual Fund.
It is a time-honored tradition. Recent graduates join the exclusive ranks of Sweet Briar Alumnae. They enjoy the benefits of membership to this vast network of those who have gone before them, and they are the connective bridge to future graduates. It is about class unity. It is about women supporting women through philanthropy and volunteering. It is about the Sweet Briar Promise from one alumna to another, to yet another.
Young Alumnae’s giving makes a difference, and last year they contributed $29,104 to the
