Giving Societies


The Presidents Society represents a group of dedicated alumni, parents, and friends that demonstrate commitment by supporting the College at a leadership level. For more than 50 years, Presidents Society donors have had an enormous impact on our success by strengthening Skidmore’s reputation as a top liberal arts college. Each year an impressive 90% of gifts to Skidmore come directly from the Presidents Society — a true testament to the generosity of our community.

To endure and thrive, an institution must blend a reverent connection to its past, a dynamic resolve in its present, and an unflagging vigilance for its future. Skidmore College is just such an institution, and our Legacy Society is an embodiment of those generational commitments.

The Legacy Society recognizes all those supporting the College’s future with a planned gift commitment. This provides the College with the opportunity to understand your intentions and thank you for your commitment. Your membership in the Legacy Society will also help us encourage others to make similar commitments.

Legacy Society members also receive the annual Legacy Society Report and calendar. Our sincere gratitude goes out to all those who through their foresight and generosity have ensured Skidmore’s growing success. If you have included Skidmore in your plans, please consider notifying Arthur T. Tracy in the Office of Gift Planning, if you have not already done so.
