Giving Societies

Gifts to Doane University help to support the mission and experiences at the university.  Every gift is important to sustaining our vision of academic excellence and quality.  To recognize this tremendous investment, Doane University has established donor societies and clubs.  Through events and publications, we hope to keep society and gift club members informed about the activities and initiatives of the university.

The Heritage Society

The Heritage Society allows Doane to recognize individuals who make a gift through the donation of an estate, deferred or planned gift. Estate, deferred and planned gifts are instrumental in the growth of the endowment fund.

The gold level recognizes individuals who have committed to an irrevocable gift.  Silver level recognizes individuals who have made a revocable gift commitment.

Gifts may be channeled to specific areas in the university such as school, library, acquisitions or instructional equipment or left to be used where needed most.

The Doane Society

The Doane Society honors donors who have made gifts of $1,000 or more, within a fiscal year.  These donors demonstrate extraordinary financial commitment to the University, year after year.  For Doane to continue its vitality in the decades ahead, leadership giving as well as leadership action will be important.  Doane Society members show their passion and commitment to Doane through their leadership giving.  If you are not already a Doane Society member, for this year, give now to become our newest member.
