The 1798 Circle, named for Milton Academy’s founding date, is the Milton Fund’s annual leadership giving society. Each year, gifts from the 1798 Circle’s generous leadership donors are instrumental in sustaining the excellence of Milton’s K-12 education by increasing the school’s ability to seize new opportunities by reducing its dependence on tuition.

Recognition and Levels

Milton alumni, parents, friends, and students lead by example as members of the 1798 Circle. This year, Milton asks 1798 Circle donors to help offset the rising cost of a Milton education by increasing their annual contribution. Beginning July 1, 2022, the 1798 Circle will recognize all donors with gifts to the Milton Fund of $2,500 or more. There are also graduated levels for students and young alumni.

1798 Circle donors receive recognition from the school for their generosity, including special communications, invitations to exclusive stewardship events, and early registration for limited Milton events.
