• 1838 Society

    Named for the year the Godfrey campus of Lewis and Clark Community College was originally founded as the former Monticello College, the 1838 Society is a group of community leaders, alumni and friends who demonstrate their commitment to Lewis and Clark and the historic Godfrey campus by giving $1,838 (or more) in unrestricted funds annually.


    The 1838 Society supports the tradition of excellence and education that was established by Monticello College, and funds contributed by this society help fulfill Lewis and Clark's educational mission and assist in sustaining the historic grounds of the former Monticello College. Member contributions make an immediate and meaningful impact on students, faculty and staff.

    Please join us today with an undesignated gift of $1,838. We welcome your membership and encourage you to invite others to become members with you.
