Giving Levels

Make Your Gift

The Presidents Society represents a group of dedicated alumni, parents, and friends that demonstrate commitment by supporting the College at a leadership level. For more than 50 years, Presidents Society donors have had an enormous impact on our success by strengthening Skidmore's reputation as a top liberal arts college. Each year an impressive 90% of gifts to Skidmore come directly from the Presidents Society—a true testament to the generosity of our community.
