Why Give

Did you know that women hold less than 30% of executive positions at the nation’s colleges and universities? By supporting HERS, you are helping to close that gender equity gap.

Since the founding in 1972, HERS has made great strides in chipping away at visible and invisible barriers to senior leadership positions in higher education for women. Every year, another woman rises in the ranks and we continue to see institutional “firsts” — of deanships, presidencies, vice presidencies, provost roles, and other comparable titles filled by women and women of color. We still have work to do — but we believe we’ll achieve true parity soon, with your help.


100% of your money supports the advancement of women leaders in higher education through the development and delivery of HERS programs.

By donating to HERS you are directly supporting the mission to create and sustain a diverse community of women leaders through leadership and career development programs, with a core commitment to achieving greater equity, inclusivity and excellence in higher education.

Please consider donating to HERS now, so HERS can support more women in 2021 and beyond. Contributions to HERS support scholarships for HERS Leadership Institute (HLI) participants, recruitment of diverse program participants, and program research and delivery.

Support HERS’ 2021 Giving Tuesday Campaign

Make an individual or cohort-based contribution towards HERS’ annual fundraising goal of $21,000 by Tuesday, November 30, 2021.

Giving Tuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we foster together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity across the globe. To celebrate this global day of generosity, you and your HERS alumnae sisters can unite around the shared goal of supporting women’s continued advancement in 2022 and beyond.

Your contribution of any size will help HERS meet the fundraising goal of $21,000 for this campaign and commemorate the milestone of 2021 in our shared HERStory. After a year of many challenges and opportunities, you can “pay it forward” and enable other women to become BOLD leaders.

If you’re a HERS alumna, make your Giving Tuesday donation in honor or your HERS Leadership Institute cohort and participate in a friendly competition to see which cohort can reach the highest level of member participation.
