Reed Parent and Family Giving Society logoThe Parent & Family Giving Society recognizes parent and family donors. This generous community of families make a direct impact on nearly every aspect of the college, including financial aid, faculty research, student life and career exploration.

Eliot Society

Eliot Society logoThe Eliot Society recognizes donors who name Reed as a beneficiary of their will or trust or who establish a life income gift. This tradition of generosity reaches back to Reed's roots—the college itself was established through a bequest from the estates of Simeon and Amanda Reed in 1908. The society is named for Thomas Lamb Eliot, who first suggested to Simeon and Amanda Reed that they use their financial resources to found an institution of learning in Portland.
