Why Should I Become a Member?
Join an elite cadre of donors who recognize the value of empowering the University with immediate cash resources to fund new ideas and initiatives as they emerge. Through the Rotunda Society you can channel your giving to those areas of the University for which you are most passionate. You may choose to fund the preservation of Historic Buildings and Grounds, new advances in cancer research, creative joint education collaborations such as the program between the Curry School of Education and the College of Arts & Sciences, or any of a number of annual giving efforts across the Grounds.
What Can I Support?
Are you a graduate of the Architecture School who has a passion for lacrosse, or perhaps an Engineering alum who loved the Lawn? Are you a parent who wants to ensure that your child has ready access to computer support, whether in the classroom or the dorm room? Through annual giving, you can direct your support to any or all of these interests. You can also elect to leave a portion of your contribution totally unrestricted, giving the University the greatest flexibility to direct funds to where they are needed most. Make a gift now to one of the University’s twelve schools or any other worthy program of your choice.
