Established in the fall of 2001, the President’s Associates are a society of donors committed to making contributions of $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund. The generous support of these alumnae/i and friends is used in a variety of ways, including financial aid, faculty development, student activities, and buildings and grounds maintenance.
This year, 201 alumnae/i, trustees, and friends contributed more than $500,000, raising over 65% of the Annual Fund.
A corporate matching gift can be included in your President’s Associates level gift! Check with your Human Resources office to see if your company sponsors a matching gift program.
