Philanthropy Powered by Exeter Women

In recognition of the Academy’s 50th anniversary of coeducation, the Women’s Leadership Circle offers Exeter women the opportunity to empower girls to bring their voices to the Harkness table, regardless of financial need.

With gifts of $50,000 or more, Exeter alumnae will be invited into the Circle. Your membership will directly contribute to the success of girls at Exeter through scholarships and flexible-use funds and provide you with opportunities to engage with those students annually.
