Support Our Mission

At Ashley Hall, we believe that our philanthropic actions communicate who we are and what we believe in on the deepest level. They are an opportunity to harness our passions, to act on our values for the greater good, and to nourish our souls. This value is interwoven into our work with students with the desired outcome of producing young women who are “ethically responsible and prepared to meet the challenges of society,” as our mission clearly states. Fulfilling this mission would not be possible without support from the Ashley Hall Community.

“I donate to the Loyalty Fund to give back to the school that molded me into the woman I am today and to ensure that bright young women will always be able to attend.” – Melaina Clement Pate ’73

Global Studies Program Initiative

Ashley Hall’s hallmark “worldly” is at the forefront of our curriculum today more than ever. To support programmatic initiatives around this, Ashley Hall initiated a fundraising effort to propel the school and its students to meet the challenges of the global world.

A $4 million Global Studies Campaign was created and provides support for:

  • Purchase of the Rutledge House for Global Studies at 179 Rutledge Ave
  • Renovation of Rutledge House
  • Maintenance of the Rutledge House
  • Support for professional development and Global Studies curricula

Thanks to our philanthropic community, we have exceeded our $4 million goal and created innovative and sustainable programs ensuring our girls can compete in a global economy. Thank you!
