Giving Societies

Join Donors Who Chart the Boldest Future

Temple University is many things to many people. A place to pursue life's passions. A nurturing learning environment. A hotbed of research. An engine of employment. A melting pot of ideas and innovation. An incubator for tomorrow's leaders.

Those who give to Temple fuel innovation, further research, expand opportunity and create the experiences that are hallmarks of a Temple education. Members of Temple's giving societies—our most dedicated donors—are responsible for Temple's momentum and are helping to drive our bold future. The university is most grateful for their philanthropic vision and leadership.

Temple's giving societies recognize:
  • The Acres of Diamonds Circle, visionary forward-thinking donors who strengthen Temple by including the university in their wills, trusts or by beneficiary designation.
  • The Chairman’s Circle, extraordinary generous donors who invest $1 million or more here at Temple.
  • The Conwell Society, active leadership donors who support Temple with annual gifts of $1,000 or more ($500+ for 2007—2012 graduates and $250+ for 2013—2017 graduates).
  • The Wachman Society, exceptionally loyal donors who have given to the university for 25 or more years.

Participate in Temple's community of committed donors and be recognized with special insider access and unique Temple opportunities.
