Donor Recognition

Giving Societies

Quatrefoil Society

The Quatrefoil Society recognizes the University of Richmond’s most generous benefactors whose transformative philanthropy over time has helped shape the University since its founding in 1830. Members are permanently recognized on the Quatrefoil Society wall in the University Forum overlooking Westhampton Lake. The inaugural Quatrefoil class was inducted in 2008.

Robins Society

The Robins Society is the University’s newest giving society, launched in January of 2019, and recognizes those loyal donors who have made gifts to the University in consecutive years. Robins Society members understand that gifts to the University each year, and at all levels, help fund the University’s ambitious agenda. More than 8,000 individuals comprised the inaugural class of the Robins Society and we look forward to welcoming new members into this group in the coming months and years.
