Donor Recognition

Our donors leave an indelible mark on the University and make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students. We strive to recognize and celebrate their selfless contributions through giving societies and named funds and spaces.

Robins Society

Loyal support is the cornerstone of our institution’s success. Launched in Janaury 2019, the Robins Society honors steadfast donors who continue our important tradition of giving. Through this society, we proudly recognize those who have given to the University over an unbroken series of fiscal years, regardless of the amount of their giving.

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.
