D.L. Moody Society

portrait of DLMoodyThe D.L. Moody Society is a group of alumni, parents, and friends who give generously to Northfield Mount Hermon each year. The school depends on Moody Society donors, whose contributions in support of the NMH Fund, capital projects, and the endowment have a huge impact on the school and its students, faculty, and staff.

Named in honor of the school's founder, the Moody Society serves as a cornerstone of financial support for NMH. Its members help sustain Moody's original vision of offering an education for the whole student: head, heart, and hand.

To show appreciation for this commitment to NMH's principles and traditions, the school invites Moody Society members to exclusive gatherings with the head of school and recognizes their generosity at events.
