1909 Society

Giving at the Leadership Level

The 1909 Society recognizes donors who have made cumulative gifts of $1,000 or more to Keene State College in one fiscal year (July 1 - June 30).

All gifts - including matching gifts from your employer - to any fund at the College count towards membership in the 1909 Society.

I contribute at the 1909 level because the impact of the scholarships that are awarded is so profound, they can literally change a student’s life.
– Patrick McDermott ‘76
