Giving Societies

Leaders in Philanthropy

The University honors generous and loyal donors at all levels through giving societies that offer special recognition, customized information and exclusive invitations.

Maintaining academic excellence and affordability is costly, and in order to preserve broad access to a St. Ambrose education we rely on loyal President's Club donors who support the mission of enriching lives.

The President's Club recognizes donors who make gifts of $1,000 and above to any designation within a single year to St. Ambrose University. Leadership donors contribute over 94% of the dollars raised annually. Their substantial gifts to St. Ambrose University set them apart as shining examples of what it means to be an Ambrosian - a collection of exceptional individuals whose unified efforts significantly impact the education and enrichment of today's and tomorrow's students. 

PC BOLD (Bees of the Last Decade) recognizes recent alumni whose generous annual giving sets them apart from their peers. Those who qualify for the PC BOLD give at the following levels:
• $250 to $499 and graduated in the last 1-5 years
• $500 to $999 and graduated in the last 6-10 years

Membership is renewable annually and corporate matching gifts can count toward membership if received or verified within the year.

Membership in the Bishop McMullen Legacy Circle recognizes the thoughtful and intentional donors who give gifts of $50,000 or more to the Endowment Fund, or who notify St. Ambrose of their intentions to make provisions for the University in their estate plans. Such provisions may include bequests, trusts, life insurance policies, annuities, securities, gifts of property, or other methods of planned giving.

The Pinnacle Society honors the university's most generous alumni and friends, those whose vision and support enables St. Ambrose University to prepare leaders who are ready to navigate the challenges of a rapidly changing world through service and faith. The Pinnacle Society recognizes all donors whose total giving exceeds $100,000 during their lifetime.

Consecutive annual gifts, regardless of amount, transform student lives. The Ambrose Loyal Giving Society was created to recognize those alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff who make annual gifts of support to St. Ambrose. These donors have given for at least 10 consecutive years and their generous giving is very meaningful to our university.
