Alumni Council in Pennies for Martha T-Shirts

CAPTION: Berry Alumni Association President Frances Richey (83A, 87C), kneeling, and other members of the Berry Alumni Council model their 2017 “Pennies for Martha” t-shirts.

As long as there has been a Mountain Day, Berry students have been dropping pennies into the basket at the foot of Lavender Mountain – first as a birthday gift to Martha Berry and more recently to support scholarships and student work. Last year, this longstanding tradition was extended to alumni and friends through the Pennies for Martha day-of-giving campaign, and more than 2,300 in-person and online gifts resulted.

With another Mountain Day just around the corner, we hope you’ll help us build on this new tradition by making a gift of any size between now and Oct. 7. Contribute online at berry.edu/pennies for martha or, even better, in person at Mountain Day. Anyone making a gift of $10 or more will be entered in a raffle for a Pennies for Martha t-shirt.

Whether you make a gift or not, we hope you’ll keep an eye on the Pennies for Martha website for news of a rumored “super fan” who could be making an appearance in the days ahead. If the stories are true … well, you’ll have to see it to believe it.
