Centennial Society Spotlight

The Centennial Society was established in 2012 to recognize alumnae/i and friends who have demonstrated the commitment and foresight to name the College as a beneficiary of a planned gift. Throughout the Mount’s history planned gifts have helped the College make significant gains—strengthening the endowment, funding scholarships, and enhancing academic programs.

In recent years, more than 190 individuals have joined the ranks of the Centennial Society, whose ongoing purpose is to acknowledge planned gifts and to ensure that the College has the means to offer a consistently exceptional liberal arts education well into the future. Each has a story to tell; here we share a few of them.
