Giving Societies

The 1889 Society

The 1889 Society honors cumulative lifetime giving of $500,000 or more in cash and includes donors dating back to the founding days of the college.

The Frances Winship Walters Society

The Frances Winship Walters Society honors donors who support the future of Agnes Scott through their estate plans or other legacy planned gifts.

Frances Winship Walters, class of 1894 and a trustee of the college from 1937 through 1954, has been called the “second founder of Agnes Scott.” During her lifetime, she contributed generously and loyally to Agnes Scott, and upon her death left a gift that doubled the endowment at the time.

We honor her philanthropy and that of every legacy donor through the Frances Winship Walters Society.

The Fideles Society

The Fideles Society honors donors who have made gifts for three or more consecutive fiscal years to Agnes Scott. The Fideles Society recognizes this loyalty without regard to the amount of giving; indeed, every gift counts.

The Tower Circle Society

The Tower Circle Society honors annual leadership donors (gifts of $2,500 or more to Agnes Scott, including The Bell Ringer’s Club).

Matching gift pledges count toward membership in all the recognition clubs within The Tower Circle Society. To see if your employer matches gifts to higher education, use our e-match system or contact your personnel office.
