GOLD Founders Society

Shady Side Academy is excited to announce the launch of a new level within our leadership society. The GOLD Founders Society is a group of dedicated graduates within the past 10 years, classes 2008-2018, who support Shady Side at a distinguished level of $500 or more. Members of the GOLD Founders Society help raise the bar for academics, athletics, student life, and leave a legacy for future students.

For your convenience, gifts can be paid over the course of the Academy's fiscal year July 1 through June 30. Monthly recurring credit card payments are an easy and affordable way to join the Founders Society. If you work for a matching gift company, your employer’s match will count toward your membership! Please visit our online giving form to make your gift today.
