The George Eastman Circle
The George Eastman Circle is the University’s donor-recognition society to acknowledge individuals who provide leadership support to any of the University’s schools or units through unrestricted annual giving.
Annual unrestricted gifts are especially valuable because they provide the fiscal flexibility that allows the University to address immediate priorities, respond to the demands of the changing environment, and enhance programs not covered by the endowment or other sources of income. Donors who make unrestricted gifts can be confident that, no matter how the funds are used, these contributions make an enormous difference in the success of the University as a whole.
George Eastman Circle members enjoy a variety of benefits including recognition in the honor roll of donors, invitations to exclusive member events, preferred parking at Meliora Weekend, a George Eastman Circle newsletter, and more.
Annual Giving Levels
Members: $1,500 - $4,999
Fellows: $5,000 - $9,999
Benefactors: $10,000 - $24,999
Patrons: $25,000 - $49,999
Membership is granted to supporters who make a five-year commitment of $1,500 or greater annually allowing for continual annual support that is critical to the University.
