Our Donors

The 1946 Society of Montgomery College 

Members of the 1946 Society have generously donated $100,000 to the Montgomery College Foundation over their lifetimes. We are in the process of inaugurating our next group of philanthropic leaders. The list below represents the inaugural friends of the College who were inducted into this leadership donor society in October 2007.

Founded at the end of the Second World War to meet the educational needs of our country’s returning soldiers, Montgomery College has always been in the business of empowering students to change their lives. Just as the founders of Montgomery College understood the need to provide an unprecedented educational opportunity to the men and women of America’s greatest generation, the members of The 1946 Society, through their exceptional vision, dedication, and unparalleled generosity, have demonstrated their abiding commitment to both our mission and the importance of guaranteeing that these opportunities prevail for the many great generations to come. Thus, it is with sincere gratitude and admiration that we honor the following members of The 1946 Society of Montgomery College.
