Special Giving Societies

The Fideles Society

The Fideles Society honors donors who have made personal gifts for three or more consecutive fiscal years to The Fund for Agnes Scott. The Fideles Society recognizes this loyalty without regard to the amount of giving; indeed, every gift counts. Members proudly display the Fideles Society decal on vehicle windows and are noted in the annual fund section of the college's annual donor report with a superscript F symbol by their names.

Membership in the Fideles Society is maintained each fiscal year by a personal gift to The Fund for Agnes Scott. While greatly appreciated, corporate matching gifts do not count toward individual membership. If a fiscal year passes in which the member does not make a gift to the annual fund, membership is suspended until the donor resumes annual fund support for three consecutive fiscal years.

The Frances Winship Walters Society

The Frances Winship Walters Society recognizes alumnae and friends who support Agnes Scott through their estate plans or other planned gifts. A social event in their honor is held every year during Alumnae Weekend, the third weekend in April.
