Giving Societies

The ESF College Foundation has three premier membership societies. Among other benefits, members receive recognition in the Annual Report & Honor Roll of Donors and special invitations to Foundation Events. If you are interested in learning more about membership please contact 

1911 Society 

Named for the year of the college’s founding, 1911 Society members have donated at least $1,911 to the ESF Annual Fund in a given year. 1911 Society members’ contributions help to meet the ever-increasing expenses associated with maintaining a state-of-the-art campus, student scholarships and faculty support.

Founder’s Club

Members' cumulative lifetime giving equals $25,000 or more. The Founder’s Club currently has over 180 members, whose collective giving to the foundation provides support for generations of ESF students to come. 

Robin Hood Oak Society 

Named for the stately English oak tree that has graced the ESF campus for decades, the Robin Hood Oak Society recognizes the distinguished loyalty and commitment of its members - a special group of people who have made a planned gift to ESF or who have included a provision for the College in their estate plans. The Foundation has received over $8 million in realized bequests since the Society was launched in 2004. Learn more about planned giving
