Donor Recognition Societies Recognizing W&L's Donors

The President's Society

The President's Society is Washington and Lee's recognition club honoring our most outstanding donors to the Annual Fund. Leadership gifts, those of $2,500 or more, typically account for 73 percent of the Annual Fund. Membership is available to any donor who gives $2,500 or more per year to the Annual Fund.

The 1749 Circle

The 1749 Circle is a special philanthropic society recognizing and honoring the loyal alumni, parents, and friends who support the University consistently over time. This society is not about how much you give; it's about the simple act of giving, year after year.
