THE PLEDGE TO SAVE MILLS COLLEGE
Your generous pledge can help ensure Mills continues to exist and thrive as an independent and private degree-granting, historically women’s liberal arts college.
Your pledge is contingent upon Mills College remaining an independent and private degree-granting college, retaining its traditional mission as an undergraduate college for women, and a graduate school for all genders. Your pledge will help pay the costs to keep the College running.
Your pledge is contingent on:
Replacing the current leadership with those skilled in financial turnarounds and who are fully committed to the above mission of the College, with its current admissions policy.
Establishing shared governance with full and active participation of all stakeholders: students, staff, faculty, alumnae/i and administration in the operation, recruiting and fund raising for the college.
Pledge totals will be presented to the governing board of Mills College, the Attorney General of California, and to the public. If and when the College commits to the above terms, you will be asked to contribute your pledge to the College.
By completing this form, you are committing to the terms of the pledge as described above.
Thank you for your generous pledge to ensure Mills continues to exist and thrive as an independent and private degree-granting, historically women’s liberal arts college.

The Save Mills College Coalition believes that Mills College, founded in 1852 as an independent, historic women’s liberal arts college located in the heart of Oakland, California, has long been and can continue to be an irreplaceable educational resource. Our ongoing purpose is to preserve Mills’ unique identity, broad educational focus, and current admissions policy, and to restore the college to financial viability with sound leadership and the needed resources to continue serving its historic mission for generations to come.
“Let it be understood that Mills College is not a private institution, but that it belongs to the young women of California and of the world.”
