To qualify as a new member to the 1906 Annual Giving Society:
Annual Gifts of $1,200 or more must be made during the fiscal accounting period July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018. (Any gifts made after June 30, 2018 will be counted toward next year’s totals).
The donations may be designated to specific funds or used for scholarships or initiatives that enhance teaching, research, athletics, cultural activities and economic development. Couples’ gifts are combined to count as one household. Matching gifts, as well as gifts-in-kind, are counted in the cumulative giving totals.
Some additional guests are invited to the 1906 Society Event based on the following criteria:
Georgia Southern Loyal members with gifts of $200 or more hitting milestone years of consecutive giving (ie., 5 Years, 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, etc. of consecutive giving to Georgia Southern University).
Blue and White Associates – Graduates Of the Last Decade (based on number of years since graduating) who have donated gifts of $300-$600 to Georgia Southern University.
Mid-level cumulative donors with lifetime totals of $12,000-$24,999 whose most recent gift has been within the last 5 years.
