The Goucher Society – Associate Membership

Section Menu

What did you take away from your time at Goucher?         

  • A new way of looking at the world
  • A best friend or partner
  • The chance to study overseas
  • An opportunity to help others
  • A job

At Goucher, you made friends to last a lifetime and opened your mind to a whole new world. Those experiences don't have to end. It's very likely that the Greater Goucher Fund supported many of the experiences that mattered most to you. And even if you just graduated, it's not too soon to think about giving back.

The John Franklin and Mary Fisher Goucher Society was established to recognize donors whose contributions to the college honor the evolution of their dream and underwrite the spirit of excellence and innovation that are the hallmarks of a Goucher education. The Goucher Society Associate membership recognizes leadership gifts from young alumni, with giving levels scaled according to their graduation year.

You don't have to wait until you've reached a major milestone in your career to join. Your philanthropy can have a positive impact on students right now. Goucher Associate leadership gifts begin at $50 a year - the cost of a cup of coffee a month, and increase $50 per year for the first fifteen years after you graduate. It's never been more affordable to make an impact!
