Elevating and celebrating women's giving to Kenyon

From the days of Kenyon’s founding, when Lady Jane King Parsons, the Countess of Rosse, was one of the most generous original donors to the College, women have always invested in Kenyon.

Today, they make it possible for more deserving students to benefit from the rigors of a Kenyon education with support for scholarships. They help shape the relationships and discourse in and out of the classroom by giving to endow professorships. They give each year to our annual funds, which bring vitality and promise to each school day. 

Beginning in 2019, to celebrate and elevate the role women play in guiding and supporting the priorities of Kenyon, we introduced a Women & Philanthropy initiative.

Get Involved

Support Women at Kenyon Our data from 2017-18 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.
