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.

Tower Society

The Tower Society honors the University's most generous annual donors. Recognition of donors is tiered according to the level of support offered during a fiscal year. The Society’s members are instrumental in helping the University maintain the highest level of academic excellence. Each gift directly impacts today’s students and enhances their Richmond experiences.

Robins Society

The University’s newest giving society, launched in January of 2019, 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.

Recognition Opportunities

Naming opportunities exist for buildings, named spaces within buildings, and on the campus grounds.

Endowed Funds

The most direct and immediately effective way to support students is to establish and endow a scholarship or a University of Richmond Summer Fellowship. Naming opportunities exist at established levels.

Non-Scholarship Endowments

Meaningful, named support of the University is available through funding the positions of our most accomplished faculty, Endowed Distinguished Chairs, and Endowed Chairs.
