Meredith is going strong financially and getting stronger every day, thanks to decisive steps that have been taken by the College as well as increased giving from the entire Meredith community.

Measures already taken include more strategic investment of resources, development of new revenues, and careful stewardship of the endowment. And the rates of giving to Meredith are up across the board, with record levels of faculty and staff giving, increased annual giving, and a higher percentage of alumnae giving. Your support of Beyond Strong will ensure this positive momentum continues.
