Kenyon alumnae give back in a variety of inspiring ways — to their communities, their families, their professions and their alma mater. 

Kenyon Women Giving Back celebrates these philanthropic alumnae, honors their contributions and shares the important stories of how Kenyon women are impacting the world collectively. The association is committed to fostering community and engagement with alumnae and current women students and supporting the College financially.

Supporting Women at Kenyon

Recent data suggests that although women are more engaged with Kenyon than their male counterparts, they do not lead with philanthropy as strongly as men. In the ongoing Our Path Forward campaign, roughly one-third of giving is coming from women. Join us to change that.

  • Leaving Their Marks

    Three women named spaces in the new Chalmers Library: the Ellen W. Griggs ’77 Career Development Suite, the Christine Gould Sharkey ’80 Writing Center and the reading room, named in recognition of a gift from Betty Lou Hawbaker to honor her son, Robert K. Carver Jr. ’79.
