Alumni Giving 
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.
Southwestern’s Tower Society recognizes top alumni donors who have graduated within the past ten years. The Tower Society is named in recognition of the annual tradition where graduating seniors sign the stone walls of the Cullen Tower and honors donors who make annual gifts to support the institution. Members of the senior class join the Tower Society for the first time when participating in this historic tradition.
President’s Council Member
Southwestern University recognizes individuals who have given $1,000 or more in the fiscal year 2019-2020, and includes our Tower Society members who represent our most committed young alumni donors. Each President’s Council member is vital to the success of Southwestern and enriches the Southwestern Experience for students.
1840 Society Member
1840 Society members support Southwestern University through deferred gifts. These gifts, although they are planned now, will be available to benefit the University in future years. Southwestern University is grateful to 1840 Society members who are preparing for the University’s future today.
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.
