The 1890 Society, named in honor of the year Saint Joseph Academy was established, includes a special group of Saint Joseph Academy alumnae, parents, grandparents, friends, faculty and staff members who annually support the Academy at a leadership level.

Membership is extended to our most generous and active donors, sharing cumulative gifts of $1,000 or more each year.

The 1890 Society includes those individuals in our community who share our vision and mission to empower young women to achieve academic excellence and inspire a life of compassionate leadership and service in a global community.

With sincere thanks for their generous commitment to this mission, members of the 1890 Society are invited to a special evening reception on the beautiful Scholars’ Porch at Saint Joseph Academy each September and our Appreciation Mass and Homecoming in October. Members also receive periodic updates from President Mary Ann Corrigan-Davis '71 throughout the year.

With extreme thanks for their generous commitment to ensuring the future of the Academy through their estate plans, members of the Fontbonne Legacy Society are considered life-time members of the 1890 Society.
