Donor Recognition

Honor Roll of Contributors

Generous support from our alumni, friends, businesses, and foundations provides us with a margin of excellence in providing for every Winthrop student.

D.B. Johnson Society

Honoring Winthrop’s founder, the D.B. Johnson Society celebrates the contributions of those who have made planned giving arrangements to benefit Winthrop.

President's Leadership Circle

The President's Leadership Circle recognizes donors giving $2,500 or more to the university each year. President's Leadership Circle members will receive a special car decal recognizing their support.

Blue Line Society

The Blue Line Society is an annual recognition society to honor donors based on their annual giving to the Winthrop Fund or other areas of the university from Jan. 1-Dec. 31. Special recognition is given to members of the Blue Line Society to show appreciation for their leadership giving and impact their donation has on campus.

Donors who make a gift of $1,000 or more annually, including corporate matches, will be recognized at the Blue Line Society level. Young alumni who make gifts totaling $200+ (classes of 2012-16) and $800+ (classes of 2002-06) will be recognized at the Blue Line Society level. Faculty and staff giving $500+ annually also will be included in this leadership society.

Blue Line Society members will receive a special car decal recognizing their support as well as an invitation to Fall Convocation each year to witness the time-honored Blue Line tradition.
