We celebrate 1841 Society members with special publications and invitation-only events.


Green + Blue Loyalty Society

Williston Northampton depends on the loyalty of its community members. Your support every year—at any level—is crucial to our success. The Green and Blue Society recognizes donors who have given to the Williston Northampton Fund for two or more consecutive years. Sustaining donors who contribute recurring monthly or yearly gifts become members of the Green and Blue Society immediately.


Elm Tree Society

The Elm Tree Society honors those individuals whose generous legacy gifts will support Williston Northampton beyond their lifetimes. Planned gifts to Williston Northampton include bequests, life income arrangements, and other deferred gifts. To learn more, visit our planned giving page.
