Sustaining Excellence
Created in 2005, the Founders Society is an exclusive donor recognition group that recognizes the most generous supporters of The University of Arizona. It honors individuals, corporations and foundations who have contributed $1 million or more toward the University's continued excellence. Founders Society members' gifts have changed the face of the UA - their names grace buildings across campus, they fund endowed chairs for the recruitment and retention of top faculty, and they support scholarships awarded to bright and deserving students.

Members enjoy many benefits, including:

  • Opportunities to meet and exchange ideas with University leadership;
  • Individual reports demonstrating how their philanthropic contributions benefit the University;
  • Recognition events in their honor;
  • Special invitations to member-only events;
  • Publicity and acknowledgement (at the donor's discretion) of gifts and the progress/related accomplishment-benefits;
  • Eligibility for President's guest seating at cultural and athletic events; and,
  • Recognition memento print of Old Main.
