Why should I join?
The Colleges need you! Most of the programs currently on campus are here because of the gifts provided by alumni, alumnae and parents. Help the future classes receive the same opportunities you have been given by giving to Hobart and William Smith and joining the Stewardson Society. Join your classes legacy and leave a positive impact by supporting the future of the Colleges. The current class participation record is 79% set by the Classes of 2012. Does your class have what it takes to dethrone 2012?
How much is it?
To become an official member of the Stewardson Society you need to make a minimum gift of $20.13. To become a member of the Stewardson leadership level, the Emerson Society, a $50 gift or more is required.
What is the Emerson Society? Why should I join?
The Emerson Society is the leadership level of the Stewardson Society. Emerson members show the highest commitment to leaving their classes legacy at HWS. Members of this society will be granted access to events specific to Emerson Society members.
Do I have a choice where my money goes?
You do! You can select the department, activity, program…support any area that you are most passion about. Unsure of where to give? Support the Annual Fund. Gifts made to the Annual Fund have the most immediate impact on students. Annual gifts support the Colleges’ budget where funds are most needed.
What do I get by giving?
You get to know you were a contributing factor in the development of Hobart and William Smith Colleges! For those of you who are not sold on that, we do have events that are for Stewardson members only. While these events are great opportunities for us to socialize with our classmates, we want YOU to give because YOU want to! Such events vary from off campus events at local restaurant’s/bars to forum discussions with Board of Trustees, stay tuned!
