The 1915 Society

Named in honor of the year of the school's founding, The 1915 Society celebrates those who are leaders in annual giving at Shady Hill School while honoring the school's founding values perpetuated by these gifts. 

In recent years, nearly 10% of donors to the Shady Hill Fund have made 1915 Society-level gifts — gifts of $2,500 or more. This dedicated group makes a significant impact. The Shady Hill Community celebrates and acknowledges this leadership giving and encourages others who are able to lead as well. 

The success of The 1915 Society — and the generosity, vision, and leadership that the giving circles celebrate — allows the school to continue supporting our talented faculty, our unique Central Subject curriculum, our commitment to financial aid, and our special campus.

How does one give to The 1915 Society?

Alumni, current & past parents, grandparents, and friends are encouraged to participate. Donors to The 1915 Society make unrestricted leadership gifts of $2,500 or more to the Shady Hill Fund. Friends are encouraged to renew and increase their commitment on an annual basis.
