1848 Society

In honor of the year Girard College first opened, the 1848 Society is the perfect way to begin your support of the school and its students. Contributions of all sizes make a difference in our students’ academic and social growth.

Young Alumni Volunteers

When you commit to join the 1848 Society by making an annual gift of $18.48, you help maintain Stephen Girard’s historic vision of making quality education accessible to students of all backgrounds.

1848 Society Donors receive:

  • Annual Recognition materials
  • Steel & Garnet Magazine
  • Access to special Girard programming and events

Thank you to our inaugural member of the 1848 Society for fiscal year 2021!
