Founders’ Annual Giving Society

The legacy of Mary Frances Clarke and the founding Sisters is alive at Clarke through the vibrancy of our campus community and longstanding traditions.

Membership in the Founders’ Annual Giving Society is reserved for alumni, friends and organizations contributing $1,000 or more to Clarke each year. Clarke graduates who have completed their undergraduate studies within the past five years are recognized as Founders’ Society members for gifts of $250 or more annually. Similarly, graduates within six to ten years are recognized for gifts of $500 or more annually.

These leadership gifts ensure our students have a well-rounded experience both inside and outside of the classroom by supporting academic programs, enrichment activities and facility enhancements.
