Through our lifetime giving clubs, we recognize the individuals who have made extraordinary commitments to Franklin College. These designations are based on one’s cumulative giving to both the Franklin Fund and to specific projects and may include deferred gifts (appropriately documented) and gifts in kind. Lifetime giving may also include contributions made in the member’s name through corporate gifts and matches and through private foundations, as well as by the member’s spouse.
Lifetime giving club members will be listed in the annual report. In addition, you will be invited to the President’s Dinner and your name will be included in the recognition booklet. You will also be added to our special invitation list for many lectures, special events and receptions.
Members of the Founder’s Circle, Ambassador’s Circle, Chairman’s Circle and Leaders for Life will also be invited to premier events, such as exclusive new building previews.
