The President's Club

Since its founding in 1967, President’s Club members have helped build our beautiful campus, funded innovative research and supported our students as they pursue their dreams.

Through their support, members of The President’s Club are committed to leading change and shaping the future of the University of Arizona. As a thank you for their generosity, members receive invitations to exclusive events, a year subscription to The Patron newsletter and public recognition as key contributors to the University of Arizona. 

Cumulative gifts totaling $2,500 made between July 1 and June 30 qualify a donor for President's Club recognition.

Members of The President’s Club who direct $10,000 or more to unrestricted funds at the university also qualify for the 1885 Society distinction. By designating your gifts to unrestricted funds, you are providing powerful support for meeting immediate needs at the university.

How to Participate

You can designate your gift to a specific program or direct the university to choose where it’s most needed. Annual contribution total is calculated based on the UA’s fiscal year beginning in July. Your spouse’s gifts and employer matches count toward membership.
