The Goucher Society
Donors who contribute a gift or gifts of at least $1,500 or more to any designation to Goucher during a 12-month period (our fiscal year runs July 1-June 30) are recognized as Goucher Society Members. Within the Goucher Society, the College also recognizes young alumnae/i who contribute annually at giving levels scaled according to their graduation year. These levels can be found on our Associate Membership page.
While all types of gifts are greatly valued and count towards membership, gifts to the unrestricted fund, the Greater Goucher Fund, are a priority for Goucher Society members. These gifts account for more than three-fourths of the Greater Goucher Fund, a major portion of which is used to support financial aid and scholarships, student and faculty research, and advancements in technology.
Today, membership in the Goucher Society is more than 400 strong and includes alumnae/i, parents, faculty, staff and friends who are dedicated to ensuring that today’s students experience a full range of intellectual, athletic, artistic and internship opportunities.
