Named in honor of the year in which the school was founded, The 1869 Society recognizes and celebrates the philanthropic leadership of individuals or couples who contribute $1,869 or more to the OES Fund during the fiscal year. By placing OES at the top of your philanthropic priorities, you are making a tangible investment that has an immediate impact on the life of the School and its students. Members of the 1869 Society play a vital role in supporting the overall welfare of the School and all the exciting, creative and innovative things happening on campus every day.

OES invites you to become part of this group of leadership donors, whose annual financial support is the foundation, representing 80 percent of the total contributions, of the OES Fund. Membership in one of the 1869 Society’s six levels (Founder’s Circle, Patrons, St. Helen’s Hall Circle, Belltower Circle, Sustaining Donors, Benefactors) is based on the total of an individual’s personal gifts and corporate matching gifts during a single fiscal year. Gifts can be cash, securities, real estate or real property, and can include an employer's matching gift amount. Find out if your employer will match your donation.

Leadership generosity is honored at The 1869 Society dinner every year in October. See photos.
