The Advancement Office at Culver is pleased to announce new giving recognition societies for Culver effective with the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
The new giving recognition societies are designed to more effectively recognize donors to the Culver Fund, the Academies' priority annual giving fund. The new societies replace all of the old giving recognition clubs such as the "C" Club, Superintendent's Club, the 1894 Associates, and the Gignilliat Club.
Leadership Donors to the Culver Fund are now recognized through two new giving recognition societies:
1) The Head of Schools' Circle for gifts of $10,000 or more per annum
2) The Leadership Circle for gifts of $1,000 to $9,999 per annum.
Leadership gifts to the Head of Schools' Circle may be unrestricted, or they can be designated to support a scholarship or faculty fund. Head of Schools' Circle members will be listed in the Annual Report as a member of the Circle as well as receive special communications from the Head of Schools. If the Head of Schools' Circle donor designates his/her gift in support of scholarships or faculty, they will also receive annual communications from the student(s) or faculty member(s) benefitting from their support.
Leadership Circle donors will also receive recognition in the Annual Report as a leadership donor. To provide a fuller sense of the impact of leadership gifts, special communications from Culver Administration and the Advancement Office will be provided to Leadership Circle donors.
Our recent alumni donors will be recognized in the Ross Beason, Jr. Society. The Beason Society honors graduates from the past 15 years and encourages them to develop their own tradition of giving.
Each alumnus/a will receive a letter of acknowledgment of Beason Club membership upon making gifts in two or more consecutive years. Recognition will also be provided in the Annual Report. Beason Society members will receive special communications from the Advancement Office.
The Eugene C. Eppley Club will continue to honor and recognize individuals who have made provisions in their estate plans for Culver. Members of the Eppley Club will receive recognition in the Eppley Club Honor Roll, a listing in the Annual Report, and regular updates from the Advancement Office.
Each of the 280+ members of the Eugene C. Eppley Club has made a provision in their estate plan to Culver. These gifts include naming Culver a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, establishing a gift annuity or setting up a charitable remainder trust or other life estate gift vehicle.
If you have any questions about the new giving recognition societies, please email Megan MacNab Bekker '87, Director of the Culver Fund, or call her directly 574-842-8094.
