Giving Societies

Our donors are at the heart of everything we do. 

Columbia College gratefully acknowledges our donors at all levels of giving. Of course, the best reward for your contribution is the knowledge that you have made a difference in the lives of our students. Thank you for including Columbia College in your generosity. 

We are proud to recognize the alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends who provide foundational support for our students and programs through three distinguished programs.

  • President's Society 
    In recognition of lifetime giving, benefactors who have provided cumulative gifts of $10,000 or more in cash, securities, real property, scholarship funds, awards or programs are granted lifelong membership in the President's Society.
  • St. Clair Society
    In recognition of planned giving, individuals who include the college in a charitable life income agreement or estate plan become lifetime members of the St. Clair Society.
  • Cornerstone Club
    In recognition of annual giving, donors who support the Columbia College Fund with $1,000 or more in gifts within a single fiscal year are recognized as members of the Cornerstone Club.
