The Bouton Circle recognizes gifts of $50,000 and up.

The highest donor recognition level is named for Nanna Duke Dushane, who was a dedicated and determined educator. As Roland Park Country School’s first headmistress from 1912 to 1922, Miss Dushane served as an exemplary role model for her colleagues, her students and her extended family, and positioned the School as a leader in the education of girls and young women. The Dushane Society acknowledges gifts of $25,000 to $49,999.
