Without our most generous and loyal donors, Davidson would not be the place it is. Our donors enable us to implement exceptional programs and initiatives that prepare our students to live lives of leadership and service.
In appreciation, Davidson honors our generous and loyal donors through induction into the following giving societies.
The Ne Ultra Society was created in 1972 by the college's Board of Trustees to honor those who make exceptional gifts to Davidson. The Ne Ultra Society recognizes donors contributing gifts of $2,500 or more during the fiscal year.
In recognition of our generous donors, Davidson has created five leadership giving circles.
Young alumni gifts are also recognized at the Ne Ultra Level.
The Founders Roundtable Society recognizes those who have made lifetime commitments to the college of $100,000 and above. The Founders Roundtable is comprised of three societies bearing prominent names from Davidson's founding years.
The Fideles Society was introduced in 2004 as means to honor the most loyal supporters of Davidson. Fideles literally means "the loyal ones" and the giving society recognizes longstanding commitment to the college. Donors automatically become Fideles Society members after making gifts to Davidson for five or more consecutive years.
The Maxwell Chambers Society bears the name of this early benefactor whose bequest set the college on a new course, and for whom the Chambers Building was named. The Chambers Society allows Davidson to thank friends who have notified Davidson of their plans for future support through their estates.
