Be a member of one of our Lifetime Giving Societies at Meredith College. Our donors play an important role in the life of the College today and for the future. Our Lifetime Giving Societies allow us to recognize our most generous supporters. 

You can become a member of any of these societies based on cumulative giving over time to the College. Annual giving societies are calculated based on gifts received during the fiscal year beginning July 1 through June 30 each year.

Annual Giving Societies—The Meredith Fund

Annual gifts are imperative to the success of Meredith College. The Annual Giving Societies recognize donors who contribute annually to The Meredith Fund, which serves as the annual giving program for the College. Annual donors play a vital role in ensuring that Meredith College continues to thrive and grow with each incoming class.

Throughout the fiscal year, gifts from annual donors establish new scholarships for students in need, support faculty research and travel, expand opportunities for our athletes, and support the College’s Greatest Needs.
