Citizen Leader Society

Citizen Leader Society

Citizen leaders are the bedrock of democracy. They are the reason communities thrive. Citizen Leaders make positive contributions to the common good of society. Acknowledging that our accomplishments would not be possible without the generous support of our donors, Longwood introduced the new Citizen Leader Society in 2016.

Members of the Citizen Leader Society take the lead among Longwood’s most influential annual supporters with their generous gifts, beginning at $1,500 (*$500 for graduates of the last decade). This support provides crucial resources that change lives and is a vital part of what is being achieved at Longwood every day.

Citizen Leader Society membership is calculated based on Longwood’s fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.
