The 1901 Society is the highest level of giving in the First League Fund program.  It is designed to allow individual donors to give $15,000 over a three-year period, beginning from the date of the first gift an individual donor contributes to the 1901 Society.

The 1901 Society was created to encourage a higher level of giving to the First League Fund, as we improve our technology and adapt our programming to meet the new priorities of our community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Contributions to the First League Fund enable continued investment in our mission, further development of our membership, stewardship of our headquarters, and delivery of our services to the most vulnerable individuals in our community at a time of increased demand.

Your participation helps foster the growth and sustainability of the New York Junior League. The funds are unrestricted unless designated by the donor.

Each member of the 1901 Society will be commemorated with an engraved brick on the wall of the New York Junior League’s Astor House garden. In addition, donors will be listed in the Annual Report.

You can make a pledge to the 1901 Society by completing this form.
