Giving Societies

The Sophia Smith Leadership Society

The Sophia Smith Leadership Society is an annual donor recognition program. Membership is based on the total of an individual's personal gifts and corporate matching gifts during a single fiscal year.

Smith is grateful for gifts of all amounts. With an eye to the future, we hope you will consider a gift at one of our special gift circles. By placing Smith at the top of your charitable giving lists, you are making a tangible investment in the life of the college and its students.
