Alumni who make financial gifts for five or more consecutive years qualify for membership in the Fleck Consistent Giving Society, named in honor of the late Cyrus S. Fleck Sr. ’20, a longtime Lafayette supporter and trustee. Members are recognized with engraved bricks along the walkway from Markle Hall across the Quad to Colton Chapel. More than 2,300 alumni were recognized in the initial 10-year class and their bricks serve as an inspiration to the campus community and visitors alike.

The Fleck Consistent Giving Society currently includes more than 7,400 members — an increase of more than 75 percent since it was established in 2005. Young alumni also have an opportunity to become members of the Fleck Society. Members of the 10 most recent graduating classes are inducted after three years of consistent giving, and those who reach the five-year mark receive their engraved brick on the Quad.

An active presence at Lafayette for more than three-quarters of a century, Cyrus Fleck served as a member of the board of trustees for 47 years and was the inaugural recipient of the Lafayette Medal for Distinguished Service. At the time of his death in 2000, 12 days before his 101st birthday, he was the College’s oldest living alumnus. The service of Fleck’s son, the late Cyrus S. Fleck Jr. ’52, to Lafayette also is remarkable. His career at the College spanned 44 years, including 32 years as registrar.

Fleck Society members are also recognized in the annual Summary of Giving and Volunteer Participation. If you would like to check your progress toward membership, or need help with locating your brick on campus, please contact the Lafayette Annual Fund at 610.330.5034 or email fund@lafayette.edu.
