1899 Leadership Society

The 1899 Leadership Society: Leadership Giving to Simmons University

The 1899 Leadership Society recognizes alumnae/i, parents, and friends who support Simmons with annual gifts of $1,899 or more during our fiscal year, July 1 - June 30. Members collectively contribute over half of the philanthropic support received by the University each year.

By providing resources for financial aid, academic and co-curricular programs, enhanced technology and more, members of the 1899 Society have a crucial impact on the student experience at Simmons. Members enjoy a variety of benefits, including invitations to exclusive events such as our annual Commencement Recognition Ceremony and the opportunity to see firsthand the impact of leadership philanthropy at Simmons.

Make a gift every year; support a student every day.
