The fully developed Center for the Environment will be an amazing platform for collaborative grant-writing.

At this early stage, voluntary participation and seed funding (aka time and money) are crucial contributions.  For the inaugural Handprint Symposium, all of our speakers and discussion leaders volunteered their time, and many alumnae came from out of state to attend.  The symposium was free of charge, thanks to generous contributions from many supporters.

To help fund Project Handprint, please visit and be sure to designate your gift to the Center for the Environment fund (not listed – choose “other” then enter this fund name).  Or send a check made out to Wellesley College, with “Center for the Environment fund” specified.  Thank you!!
