Alumni Giving   [1940 – 1949]

Alumni demonstrate loyalty to their alma mater by making a gift to support the Southwestern Experience. Through their support, alumni ensure that future generations of students have the same opportunity to obtain a Southwestern education that they had.

* Brown Society Member – Formed at the end of the historic Brown Challenge (1976-1996), the Brown Society was created to honor the loyal donor, and the Brown Family, who led the vision of sustaining annual gifts from alumni and friends, and recognizes consecutive year giving at every level.
