Send $5 now, before Commencemnt! This is about participation, not total funds raised. It's competition with Mount Holyoke but it's also good fundraising for Smith because grants are often awarded to organizations or institutions that have high rates of alum involvement and contributions which makes the college look worthy of investment.

Mid-April 2015: Holyoke at 25% participation and Smith just barely ahead at 25.3% let's keep up the stats!
