Tower Society

Generosity built the University of Richmond, and then made it exceptional. Each year, members of the Tower Society sustain this remarkable legacy with a leadership gift to the Annual Fund or to a project or program they find personally meaningful. Leadership gifts provide our students with unparalleled learning opportunities and experiences, such as:

  • Average class size of 16, ensuring personal interaction with teachers and mentors
  • The Richmond Guarantee, a commitment to provide funds for students to pursue summer internships and research experiences
  • Teams competing in 17 D-1 sports and student athletes with a 92 percent graduation rate
  • Integrated learning across five schools, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and creativity
