Saint Anselm College's 1889 Society is a giving society which honors planned and estate giving. The 1889 Society celebrates those generous and insightful donors who have chosen to leave gifts for the college through estate planning.
These gifts not only help the college plan for future programs and help students afford tuition, they also provide our benefactors with an opportunity to make a statement of priority with their estate plans. Planned and estate gifts allow the college to prepare for growth of strategic initiatives and help our donors save on taxes.
Walter Gallo '58, a proud Golden Anselmian and former administrator of the college, is founding president of the 1889 Society.
Founded in 1992, the President's Society recognizes the college's most generous donors, whose leadership giving reflects an extraordinary commitment to the students and faculty of Saint Anselm College. Since its inception, membership in the President's Society has almost tripled.
Membership in the President's Society is obtained by making an annual contribution of $1,000 or more. Donors from the ten youngest classes who contribute $500 or more are associate members of the President's Society.
By joining the President's Society, alumni, parents and friends help the college fulfill its promise to develop students as critical thinkers, principled leaders and ethical decision makers. In addition to being recognized in the college's Honor Roll of Donors, President's Society members also enjoy professional networking opportunities and an annual reception hosted by the president of the college.
