How to Become a Member
The Smith College Club of the Peninsula is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) charitable organization that sponsors social, cultural, and educational programs for the 600+ alumnae living on the Peninsula and recruits prospective students through college fairs, book awards, candidate parties, high school visits, and interviews. We do not receive any funding from the College and rely 100% on members’ dues and donations to fund our activities. The Club collects annual dues at the beginning of each fiscal year.
To renew your membership or to become a member for the upcoming year, print this form and mail the completed form along with a check for your dues to the address listed. Alternately, you may fill out the membership form online and pay dues via PayPal with our online application! We encourage all alumnae to join the Club and will waive membership dues for alumnae with current financial hardships.

Where do Dues and Donations go?

As a way of connecting with our current Peninsula students at Smith, the Club sends care packages to students twice a year during end of term exams.
Peninsula Scholarship Fund
Club and alumnae donations to the Smith College Club of the Peninsula Scholarship Fund provide funds to help local young women attend Smith.
Our events provide opportunities to meet interesting alumnae of diverse ages and backgrounds
