The Hyman Gratz Society

Become a Member

Learn more about this special community of Gratz donors and how you can become a member.

The extraordinary generosity of Hyman Gratz led to the founding of Gratz College over 120 years ago.  In his honor, the Hyman Gratz Society was created to formally recognize those who annually contribute $1,000 or more to Gratz College.  Members of the Hyman Gratz Society are special donors who make it possible for Gratz College to continue its critical mission of educating the next generations of students and teachers as well as the Jewish Community at large.

As a member of the Hyman Gratz Society, you’re invited to participate in exclusive Gratz College events, lectures, and holiday celebrations all with the Gratz College faculty. Members enjoy VIP seating at Gratz College community programs.
