The Stockton Society
The Stockton Society is one of the many ways the University expresses its appreciation for our most generous donors who contribute at least $1,000 annually. Consisting of 5 different giving circles, donors in this exclusive Society are recognized for their leadership level of support and commitment. The Stockton Society consists of nearly 300 individuals, foundations and corporate supporters annually who are committed to making a substantial and direct impact on student scholarships, academic and student life programs, and facilities.
Every gift is vital to the success of our students and the institution. However, with the support from our key donors in the Society, we are able to advance Stockton and our students in more meaningful and sustainable ways. Last year, Stockton Society members consisted of our top 16% of donors, yet they were responsible for an incredible 93% of all funds donated to the University.
It is our privilege and honor to provide direct access to the difference leadership donors are making at the institution. Society members receive special invitations and access to numerous unique events and opportunities throughout the year which highlight Stockton’s mission, connect with our deserving students, and provide networking opportunities with fellow supporters.
There are many different ways to philanthropically support our University. Opportunities include the Stockton Fund, scholarships, endowments, professorships, specified school, college and department gifts; program support, event sponsorships, as well as other restricted gift opportunities. The Society recognizes all gifts made during the University’s giving year, from July 1 through June 30. You may contribute in the following ways:
- Cash, check or credit card gifts;
- Securities, real estate and other property;
- Corporate matching gifts;
- Estate Planned Gifts (Wills, Beneficiary Arrangements and Trusts).
