University of Arizona Recognition Societies

Karl Eller and Wilbur the Wildcat

The University of Arizona Foundation celebrates University-wide giving through donor recognition groups. While each leadership giving society has unique membership criteria, collectively they highlight generosity, engage contributors, provide learning opportunities, and honor individuals for their commitment to the UA.

Founders Society celebrates donors whose cumulative giving totals a transformational level of $500,000 or more.

The President's Club The President’s Club recognizes donors who make cumulative annual gifts of $2,500 or more, have cumulative lifetime giving of $100,000+ (with $1,000 in annual giving), or joined prior to 2013. Those who make annual unrestricted gifts of $10,000 or more are also members of the 1885 Society.

Old Main Society honors giving of known bequests, charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, and life insurance.
