Starting in July 2020, the minimum Goucher Society gift amount was increased to $1,885 in honor of the year the college was founded.
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, 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.
For those who have graduated within the last ten years, check out the Van Meter Club, our new society for young alumnae/i donors.
