Recognizing Our Donors

Private giving is essential to Mizzou's ability to succeed and provide for the future and we want to thank alumni and friends for the roles they play. The university honors individuals who give at certain levels through membership in various giving societies, including the Jefferson Club, Chancellor's Society, Legacy Society and the Herbert J. Davenport Society.

  • Jefferson Club - honors donors campus-wide as MU's major giving society, named in honor of Thomas Jefferson's commitment to education and MU's status as the first state university in the Louisiana Purchase Territory
  • Herbert J. Davenport Society - thanks donors for supporting the college through a major gift; most are based upon concurrent membership in the Jefferson Club
  • Chancellor's Society - recognizes donors who support MU through unrestricted gifts to the Chancellor's Fund for Excellence
  • Columns Society - recognizes donors who give to MU or the college
  • Legacy Society - honors donors who contribute gifts through estate planning, including bequests in wills or trusts, charitable-remainder trusts, pooled-income funds or life insurance
  • 1914 Society - recognizes donors who contribute to the college by means of a bequest, life insurance or another university-approved deferred gift. The 1914 Society mirrors the parameters of the MU Legacy Society.

If a donor wishes to remain anonymous, we will honor that request to the extent allowed by law. MU's Donor Bill of Rights outlines our commitment to confidentiality and the importance of the trust our donors place in us. By publicly recognizing university donors, we believe others will be motivated to join their peers in giving back to an institution that has given them so much.
