How Your Gift Helps

You are here

Williams has flourished for more than 200 years in part because of our unwavering commitment to providing an unparalleled liberal arts education. Since our founding, alumni and parents have been crucial partners in this work. 

A Williams education ideally prepares graduates to solve problems we have not yet defined. A liberal arts education is the most versatile, durable, and, in an ultimate sense, practical, education possible.

Today we renew our commitment to the liberal arts by opening the college's doors to the most promising students no matter their financial circumstances. As Williams experiences a wave of retirements, your support helps us identify and recruit the next great faculty who will feed the intellectual flame for generations to come.
