Founders Society

founders society

The Founders Society is a group of leadership donors who made gifts of $1,883 or more for the 2016-2017 academic year. The group contributed $1,243,745, comprising 85% of the total funds raised for the Blue & Gold Fund.

The Founders Society continues to provide the philanthropic leadership upon which Shady Side Academy relies for continued advancements in all areas of school life. We are especially grateful to new donors whose first gift was made at the Founders Society level, and to Founders Society members who have given to the Blue & Gold Fund – some as leadership donors – for 20 consecutive years or more.
