Join Donors Who Chart the Boldest Future

Through the support of our philanthropic leaders, Temple has been able to change the face of healthcare and business, spur innovation focused on transforming lives, build new facilities that renew our campus, and forge the brightest futures for some of the most talented and deserving students. It’s an exciting time for the Temple community as the university continues to rise to new heights.

If you are among our leadership donors, we thank you for your role in enabling this pivotal moment in Temple’s history. Because of you, Temple is in the vanguard of higher education—a cherry red-hot success story showing how a college education can be excellent and accessible. As a leadership donor, you play a key role in our continued ascent.

To express our gratitude, we welcome our leadership donors to one of Temple’s four giving societies:

  • The Acres of Diamonds Circle recognizes Temple alumni and friends who have made planned gifts or named Temple in their wills.
  • The Conwell Society recognizes leadership donors who support Temple with annual gifts of $1,000 or more (or $500 or more for graduates of the last decade).
  • The Chairman’s Circle recognizes the most generous of Temple’s benefactors, whose cumulative giving to the university exceeds $1 million.
  • The Wachman Society recognizes Temple’s most loyal alumni and friends who have made gifts to the university for 25 or more consecutive years.
