Leadership giving at Sweet Briar has a long and distinguished history at Sweet Briar beginning in 1960 when Gladys Wester Horton ’30, Elizabeth Bond Wood ’34 and Nancy Dowd Burton ’46 together decided they wanted to raise alumnae giving to a new level and founded the Boxwood Circle Giving Society.
In the 50 years since, the Boxwood Circle has grown to recognize supporters who give $2,500 or more to the College in a fiscal year. Gifts may be cumulative and include both restricted and unrestricted gifts, including matching gifts. Since then, two new giving societies have been added, the Fountain Society and Column Society, to recognize support at the $5,000 and $10,000 level respectively.
The leadership giving program encourages a strong connection between society members and the College and recognizes supporters for their extraordinary commitment to Sweet Briar. In addition to being recognized in the Honor Roll of Donors, members receive the Boxwood Circle newsletter two times a year and invitations to special events on and off campus.
