Stephens Fund

The Stephens Fund: Now more than ever.

Now more than ever we rely on the ongoing, generous support of our alumnae and friends like you to ensure that a Stephens education is available for all women.

The Stephens Fund is the lifeblood of Stephens College and supports our day-to-day operations. The Stephens Fund is how we upgrade technology, invest in campus improvements, offer scholarships to students and bring visiting artists to campus. A gift to this unrestricted fund provides Stephens the flexibility to prioritize the projects or areas of campus most in need. As stewards of this fund, we make efficient use of every dollar you give.

By supporting the Stephens Fund, you become our partners in ensuring a bright future for Stephens women.

The Stephens Fund Areas of Focus 

Faculty Excellence

We believe in investing in bright faculty who love to teach, in
talented mentors who connect with their students and in the value of professional development. We believe in faculty who are practiced in their disciplines, engaged in teaching, research and scholarship, and who are dedicated to sharing their knowledge inside and outside the classroom.

Student Success

We believe in the transformative power of the Stephens experience,
and that at Stephens, women find their own distinct voice to live out their own unique story. We believe in ensuring young women have access to life-changing leadership, scholar-athlete and study abroad opportunities; and in opening doors to internships and careers.

Classroom Innovation

We believe in innovation, in cutting-edge technology and in grasping emerging opportunities. We believe in Stephens as a place where talent meets resources, and in providing faculty and students with the tools that enrich and strengthen the academic quality of a Stephens education.

A Vibrant and Beautiful Campus

We believe in the power of place,
a place for passion and inspiration, a place of incredible history, and in the ability of a beautiful campus to draw brilliant minds into her community. We believe, too, that a campus with resources and space for quality programs persuades students to stay and graduate.

The Legacy of Women’s Education

We believe in our proud and rich heritage that dates back nearly two centuries. In a world where women’s pay is still not equal, in countries where women’s voices are still stifled, and in coeducational classrooms where women are still embarrassed to raise their hands, there is enormous value to be found in single-gender education and in Stephens.
