Give Now


Dear Friends,
We are a group of Graduate Center faculty, staff, and alumni who have come together to create a society that will honor people who intend to make gifts that secure the future of the Graduate Center—bequests and other kinds of planned gifts. Over the years, the Graduate Center has received legacy gifts, sometimes expected and often unexpected. We are establishing a formal way of thanking people for their good intentions and facilitating their continued involvement with the Graduate Center.
Mina ReesWe are calling this initiative the Mina Rees Society after the Graduate Center’s first president Mina S. Rees (Founding Dean, 1961–68; Provost, 1968–69; President, 1969–72). She created a legacy in more ways than one, establishing the foundation for an extraordinary institution of doctoral study and advanced research, and making a bequest that supported her vision for the future. Becoming a member of the Mina Rees Society means following in her footsteps in our own way and carrying forward our vision for the Graduate Center.
We hope that you will consider joining us as one of the founding members of the Mina Rees Society . In so doing you can help ensure that the Mina Rees Society is an important part of the Graduate Center community.
It is easy to join. We hope you will become a member and join us for special gatherings that celebrate our common ties to the Graduate Center and our investment in its future.
With warmest regards,
