The 1889 Society


The 1889 Society honors cumulative lifetime giving of $500,000 or more in cash and includes donors dating back to the founding days of the college. Members are honored for their exceptional generosity in a special induction ceremony and have their names listed on an ornate plaque that hangs in the lobby of Rebekah Scott Hall.
