Edwin A. Stevens Society

Red train representing Edwin A. Stevens Society

Founded in 1974, the Edwin A. Stevens (EAS) Society is home to the university’s most engaged supporters. 

When members make annual leadership-level gifts, they mirror the generosity that Edwin A. Stevens showed with his bequest to establish the university in 1870, and they reflect the dedication Martha Bayard Stevens exemplified during her many years as a trustee bringing her husband’s vision to fruition. 

Members of the Edwin A. Stevens Society come from all corners of the Stevens community – alumni, friends, faculty, staff, parents and even students. Their investments secure the university’s strategic priorities while providing pivotal support for promising students and research with real-world impact.
