More Information

The Centennial Pledge is an opportunity for individuals whose lives were enriched by The College to make an investment in our future through a five-year annual commitment and/or a new bequest made to The College in the form of a beneficiary designation from a will, trust, insurance policy, or IRA account.

Recognized annual giving levels for the Centennial Pledge include:

  • Platinum: $10,000 (total pledge $50,000)
  • Diamond: $5,000 (total pledge $25,000)
  • Gold: $2,000 (total pledge $10,000)
  • Silver: $1,000 (total pledge $5,000)
  • Bronze: $500 (total pledge $2,500)

Your pledge will support the growth, expansion, and modernization of The College’s academic offerings and programs. You may also choose to designate your pledge to a specific program.

When you make a Centennial Pledge with an annual gift of $1,500 or more, you join The College’s President’s Circle. When you notify The College of your estate gift intention, you become a member of the Legacy Society. All Centennial Pledge donors will be recognized at The College’s annual President’s Dinner and in The College’s Donor Honor Roll.
