Through generous gifts of $1,000 and more, members of this prestigious giving club support a wide range of programs and facilities.
Gifts may be unrestricted, benefiting the College’s greatest need, or designated according to the donor’s preference. For alumni within 10 years of graduation, Marquis Society membership may be attained with a gift of $100 multiplied by the number of years since graduation.
Marquis Society members are recognized in the Summary of Giving and Volunteer Participation, are invited to a special reception in years when their classes celebrate reunions, and receive credit toward Sustaining Membership.
The Marquis Founders dinner (formerly known as the Marquis Society dinner), which is held on campus each fall, is open to members of the Marquis Founders Club and above. (Marquis Society members in the 50+ Club and members who graduated within the past decade will also receive invitations.) Additional recognition events are held on campus and regionally to acknowledge the invaluable support provided by Marquis Society members.
The Marquis Society enhances all areas of the student experience. Let’s take a look at one student to see how Marquis Society giving has impacted her four years on College Hill.
