Donor Recognition Societies

The Annual Fund offers giving recognition clubs and awards to recognize outstanding donors as well as classes that collectively provide outstanding support to the University.

  • Class Recognition Awards
    Honoring Outstanding Classes
    Each year, the Annual Fund awards trophies to recognize collective class giving. Class rankings as of June 30 determine the winners, with the exception of the trophies for reunion classes (the John Newton Thomas Trophy, the Colonnade Cup and the Trident Trophy) which have a Reunion Weekend deadline. The trophies are displayed in the Alumni House.
