Donor Recognition

In our donors, we find the crossroad where generosity meets excellence and hope meets promise.

Our recognition societies honor and celebrate these generous men and women whose gifts of treasure ensure that we will always have a university fit for Lions to roam.  We hope you will join our family of faithful supporters.

The 1889 Society
Named in commemoration of Saint Leo’s founding year, the 1889 Society recognizes the generosity of donors who offer leadership gifts totaling $1,000 or more during the fiscal year.  The five circles that make up the 1889 Society reflect giving levels that are distinctive in capacity but united in vision.

Leadership Circle: $1,000 - $2,499
Scholar Circle: $2,500 - $4,999
Dean Circle: $5,000 - $9,999
University Circle: $10,000 - $24,999
President Circle: $25,000 +

Qualifying gifts include outright cash gifts and pledge payments received during the fiscal year ending June 30.

The Founders Society
Fidelity is the essence of thoughtful leadership. It is only when we have faith in a mission that we are able to serve as torchbearers for others. The Founders Society honors the visionary generosity of those individuals and corporations whose cumulative lifetime gifts to Saint Leo University total $1,000,000 or more.

Perennial Donors
Just as perennial flowers return every year to enrich our lives, faithful and consistent stewardship enriches the lives of our Saint Leo students. Donors who demonstrate their commitment to Saint Leo University by offering a gift of any size for three or more consecutive years are honored as Perennial Donors. Qualifying gifts include outright cash gifts and pledge payments received during each fiscal year ending June 30.
