Bob Collins Society

The Bob Collins Society recognizes Saint Anselm College's most loyal donors. The society is named in honor of the late Bob Collins '37. Bob started giving to his alma mater as soon as he graduated. He made a modest donation in his first year. Then, he followed it with a gift every year... for 74 years.

Will you follow Bob's example of lifelong loyal giving?

Membership in the Bob Collins Society

You become a member when you have given for two consecutive years, or when you participate in your Senior Class Gift as a graduating senior.

You maintain your membership by continuing to give each year.

Your Participation Matters

As a loyal donor, at any giving level, you make a difference. Consistent giving has a powerful impact on Saint Anselm College.

In addition to demonstrating loyalty, a high giving rate among our alumni helps the college attract grants, rise in national rankings, and inspire other alumni, parents and friends to give.
