There are many ways to support Mass. Eye and Ear. Listed below are our Giving Societies. By giving at a certain level or including Mass. Eye and Ear in your will, you will be listed as part of the Giving Society in our annual report.
The Reynolds Society
Friends who contribute $2,500 or more during the fiscal year ending September 30, are recognized as members of the Reynolds Society for that year. Gifts can be unrestricted or designated to support the hospital program of your choosing, or the work of a particular physician, scientist, or disease area.

The 1824 Circle
The 1824 Circle recognizes individuals who make unrestricted gifts of $12,500 or more during the fiscal year. Unrestricted giving allows the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary to respond quickly and flexibly to patient and hospital needs.
1824 Circle members are also recognized in the Reynolds Society. Members receive recognition in Mass. Eye and Ear publications and invitations to hospital events.
The Annie Sullivan Society
The Annie Sullivan Society was established to recognize and celebrate those many thoughtful and generous individuals who have chosen to support Mass. Eye and Ear through their wills, planned gifts and estate plans. This special group is named for Annie Sullivan, Helen Keller's devoted teacher and companion who later became known to the world as "The Miracle Worker." Nearly blind herself, Annie regained her vision only after treatment by Dr. Henry Bradford at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. This experience inspired her to commit herself to teaching the blind and deaf.
Your legacy, of whatever size, is critically important in helping Mass. Eye and Ear provide the finest care to patients with disorders of the eyes, ears, nose, throat, head and neck. With your help, we will continue to improve the training, and expand the research that one day may prevent these diseases, or cure them entirely.
You may designate a specific purpose for your estate plan gift to Mass. Eye and Ear. Depending upon your interests, you may support patient care, research or training in ophthalmology or otolaryngology, or make an unrestricted gift that will enable the hospital to allocate the funds where they are most needed at the time they are received. You may also choose to establish your own named fund with a minimum gift of $25,000.
Please let us know if you have made a provision for Mass. Eye and Ear in your will or estate plan so we may personally thank you and welcome you into the Annie Sullivan Society. Members receive recognition in Mass. Eye and Ear publications and invitations to hospital events.
