Old Main Society

The Old Main Society represents donors who have made a commitment to the continued success of the UA through leaving a charitable estate gift.

Old Main, the UA’s first building, opened in 1891 in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. More than 120 years later, Old Main symbolizes the University’s deep and enduring commitment to education, research and outreach. It remains the heart of a thriving campus, bustling with activity. Members of the Old Main Society have made a commitment to sustaining what makes UA great through a charitable estate gift.

Members of the Old Main Society enjoy invitations to UA insider tours and exclusive events, UA commemorative mementos and a lifetime subscription to The Patron newsletter.
