Luncheon with the Executive Committee of the Friends of the Smith College Libraries

Today we had the incredible opportunity to attend a luncheon with the Executive Committee of the Friends of the Smith College Libraries. The meeting was a fantastic experience for us. We met a number of Smith Alumnae who have remained involved with the college, particularly with the college libraries.

The members of the committee had excellent advice for us concerning the project. They stressed the importance of aligning ourselves with a registered US non-profit in order to make the donation process easier and more legitimate. We agree that this will be an important step for the project as we move from the design phase into the fund raising phase. We plan to meet with the Smith Engineering department within the next week to discuss the possibility of setting up a fund through the department.

The committee members also connected us with a number of valuable resources and contacts, and we look forward to contacting them and seeking their advice and support with the project. The luncheon was a valuable experience for us as we move forward with the project, (not to mention, the food was delicious!).

We offer our sincere gratitude to the the women of the Executive Committee of the Friends of the Smith College Libraries!
