Dear Smith Alumna,
The Smith College Club of Washington is very proud of its Endowed Scholarship Fund at Smith College. Every year, we are able to support numerous scholarships to Smith College students from the greater metropolitan DC area because of proceeds from this Scholarship Fund. For the 2020-2021 club year, we provided seven (7) students with scholarships to attend Smith College!
We thank you for your ongoing support and contributions to the SCCW Scholarship Fund. As you know, our traditional sale of pecans is the primary funding source to the Scholarship Fund. To our very loyal alumnae who support our pecan sale, we thank you! If you have not tried our wonderful pecans – which come in both plain and chocolate - we invite you to buy a bag! They are delicious and make wonderful gifts. Enclosed with this letter, you will find a list of pecan sellers and a purchase form to submit for your purchase this fall.
This year, the SCCW will host an outdoor Garden Party on October 3, 2021, at the home of the parents of Sibyl Brown, Class of 2014. All proceeds from this event will be distributed into the Scholarship Fund. Tickets are $50 each for alumnae and guests. Tickets are $30 each for classes 2011-2021. Click here for more information.
If you are looking for an easy and convenient way to support the Scholarship Fund, we welcome your direct contribution. All gifts are tax-deductible and will be added to the SCCW’s Endowed Scholarship Fund at Smith College. Your contribution in any amount is greatly appreciated and truly makes a difference to the students who receive the scholarships. We sincerely appreciate the support of those who have contributed in the past, and we hope you will consider doing so again this year!
You may contribute to the SCCW Scholarship Fund in two ways:
(1) Donate right here on the SCCW website--

Thank you for your support.
Annual Pecan Sale
The Smith College Club of Washington’s main fundraising effort is the annual pecan sale that we conduct in the fall of each year. Again this year, Smithies who are into baking and giving gifts led us to a very successful pecan sale, as many used the bags of pecans as gifts and for their own baking. We sold 792 bags of plain pecans and 288 bags of chocolate covered pecans. We offer our heartfelt thanks to all those who bought pecans from the SCCW in 2021. We hope you’ll be back next fall to buy even more pecans!
Thanks to our successful sale, we’ll be able to send a sizeable donation to the club’s Endowed Fund that is managed by the college. All profits from the pecan sale are sent to the Endowed Fund and proceeds from this Fund are distributed annually as scholarships to local students.
Our network of Smith alums who sell pecans make this pecan sale work. Special thanks to
these volunteers: Anne Abend ('76), Alisa Beyninson ('99), Caroline Soleliac Carbaugh (’66), Colette de Marneffe ('82), Kristy Keteltas ('88), Mindy Kotler ('78), Pru Lake ('64), Suzanne Mucchetti ('91), and Cheryl Stadel-Bevans ('90).
We also appreciate the assistance of local stores that sell our pecans: Brookville Market in
Chevy Chase, MacArthur Beverages in NW Washington, and Morgan CARE Pharmacy in
Georgetown. Please patronize these businesses throughout the year.
Thank you for supporting our fundraising activities. Because of your generosity, several
students from the Washington area will receive scholarship money to Smith next year.
