Leadership Giving

The 1904 Society honors the year in which a group of parents, interested in securing the best possible education for their children, founded a school that embodied an education both modern and progressive in spirit, but also based on sound academic principles.

The 1904 Society recognizes those who support The Potomac School’s mission with generous gifts of $2,500 or more to the Annual Fund. To join the 1904 Society or to renew your support, click here. Thank you for your commitment to Potomac!

The Swing Tree Circle

The Swing Tree Circle is a special philanthropic society recognizing and honoring the loyal alumni, parents, and friends who support Potomac consistently over time. This society is not about how much you give; it’s about the simple act of giving, year after year. Once you establish three consecutive years' support for Potomac, you will become a member of The Swing Tree Circle. By making a gift this year, you’ll be well on your way!

Membership is simple.

  • Membership begins after your third year of consecutive giving to The Potomac Fund.
  • Recognition is based on gifts, pledge payments, and matching gifts received in a single fiscal year. Potomac’s fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30.
  • All Swing Tree Circle members will be recognized in the School’s Annual Report published each September.
