*For purposes of recognition, the value of matching gifts is added to the donor’s personal contribution.
*Recognition is based on total cash received in a fiscal year. Unpaid pledges are not included.
*Married couples are recognized for the combined total of their contributions.

The youngest alumni of Franklin College have a unique opportunity to join the President’s Circle at a reduced rate of giving, but receive all the usual recognition of membership in the President’s Circle.

Franklin College graduates 1-9 years out are invited to join the President’s Circle for $100 per year out of school. For example, in the fiscal year 2014-15, a graduate from 2013 is 2 years out and can join for $200. Married alumni not of the same class year are invited to use the older of the two class years for the basis of giving.
