The 1852 Society

The 1852 Society honors Columbia University College of Dental Medicine’s most generous and loyal donors – those who make a gift of $2,500 or more each year toward CDM’s pursuit of excellence in scholarship, research, and teaching. Young alumni within 5 years of graduation may join with a gift of $250 or more, and those who are 6-10 years from graduation may join with a $1,000 gift. 

1852 Society members are acknowledged at the annual 1852 Society Reception and receive special invitations to other signature events.
