A Community of Leaders

For more than half a century, the President’s Society has been a cornerstone of Skidmore’s success. This community of philanthropic leaders, made up of alumni, parents, and friends, provide up to 90% of the gifts made through the Skidmore Fund each year. Their generous contributions are the driving force behind our students’ transformative journeys. President’s Society members receive exclusive access to unique experiences, such as webinars and in-person gatherings, culminating in a State of The College address by President Conner every spring. When you join the President’s Society, you join a community of leaders who embrace Skidmore’s motto, Creative Thought Matters.
