Annual Giving

What Your Donation Supports

By making your tax deductible donation to the College’s Annual Fund, you will be supporting a variety of programs and projects that would otherwise go unfunded, such as the Council on Patient Safety in Women's Healthcare. Which Society is right for you?

President’s Society, is reserved for donors of $2,500. President’s Society members receive complimentary annual meeting registration for themselves  and one guest, access to the Donor Lounge for you both, onsite fast-track registration, and other site specific amenities.

Beacham Society, named for the College’s first President, Dr. Woodward Beacham, is reserved for our donors of $1,000.  Beacham Society members receive complimentary annual meeting registration, access to the Donor Lounge, onsite fast-track registration, and other site specific amenities.

Reis Society, honoring Dr. Ralph A. Reis, the first Editor-in Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology, is for our annual donors of $500.  Reis Society members have access to onsite fast-track registration and are welcome in the Donor Lounge at the annual meeting.

Schmitz Society, honoring Dr. Herbert E. Schmitz, the first Treasurer of the Executive Board of Directors of the College, is reserved for our $100 donors.  Schmitz Society members have access to on-site fast track registration, will receive a distinctive ribbon to wear at the annual meeting and are recognized in all print materials.   

Junior Fellows Society was created exclusively for Junior Fellows in Training, Junior Fellows in Training-Fellowship, and Junior Fellows in Practice.  To encourage and acknowledge your philanthropic dedication to women’s health, in what may be challenging financial times, we are offering this new society at $250 per year.  The Junior Fellow Society offers its members access to the Donor Lounge and onsite fast-track registration at the annual meeting.  This is a great opportunity to meet ACOG leaders, seek mentorship and build new friendships with Fellows. We look forward to seeing you there!

Why I Donate Monthly

If you would like to redirect a stipend to the Annual Fund, please contact Kathleen Kenny at or at 202-863-2479 prior to receiving it.

It’s easy to increase your benefits – just ask your friends and colleagues to become donors. Learn How. 

Please Note: Contributions to the College are considered charitable donations and are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by applicable law.

For Beacham and President’s Society Members who attend the Annual Meeting, your charitable donation is limited to the amount of your gift less the value of registration.  This $585.00 decrease may still qualify as a tax-deductible business expense under IRS regulations and we encourage you to consult your tax advisor. If however, you receive complimentary registration through another College activity or responsibility, your donation is fully tax deductible. For President’s Society members bringing a spouse, your tax deductibility would decrease by an additional $100.00.
