The Ellisian Society: Your Gift Matters

In 1916, Sarah Frazer Ellis established "not a large school but a sound and thorough one" to prepare young women for “the rigorous admission requirements of the Eastern women's colleges.” During the 100+ years that have passed since the school’s founding, The Ellis School’s mission has evolved beyond just preparing our graduates for college. Today, The Ellis School educates girls and young women to become bold, authentic, and intellectually vibrant changemakers.
Just as The Ellis School’s founding in 1916 laid the groundwork for today’s achievements, the support of dedicated donors who plan for Ellis through their estates ensures tomorrow’s continued success. Thank you for your interest in how your gift plans can benefit you and The Ellis School by establishing a lasting legacy through charitable contributions. There are many ways to extend your support of The Ellis School and to make a lasting impact on the many generations of Ellis girls who will follow in your footsteps.

The Ellisian Society was created to recognize and thank those whose thoughtful planning will benefit future generations of students, faculty, facilities, and/or programs at The Ellis School.
