The Maxine Greene Society of Consecutive Giving
Teachers College inaugurated the Maxine Greene Society this year to recognize and thank a community of donors whose reliable participation—year after year—exemplifies Maxine Greene’s value of deep engagement and helps further our common purpose here at Teachers College. These loyal alumni and friends have given consistently to the Annual Fund for five years or more. Consecutive gifts, at every level, support the College’s operating budget, allowing it to pioneer bold new ideas in human development and learning. It is our honor to acknowledge the members of the Maxine Greene Society, highlighted by the letter “m.”
