Recognizing that one's success in life can be measured in many different and important ways, Earlham is grateful to those whose particular successes enable them to contribute to Earlham at the President's Circle level each year. In fact, approximately 65% of all money raised through the Earlham Fund annually comes from the President's Circle donors.
The President's Circle is composed of individuals who contribute $1,500 or more to Earlham during the fiscal year. Three societies recognize donors within the President's Circle:
The 1847 Society recognizes President's Circle donors who have given at least $2,500 to Earlham during the fiscal year.
Around the Heart Society
The Around the Heart Society recognizes President's Circle donors who have contributed between $1,500 and $2,499 to Earlham in the fiscal year.
Young Leader's Circle
The Young Leaders Circle recognizes donors who have contributed at least $500 annually to Earlham, and who have graduated within the last 10 years. The President's Circle appreciates the generosity of these young alumni, who choose to contribute to the College even when their careers have just begun.
Members of all societies receive the following benefits:
- The knowledge that their gifts keep Earlham on solid financial ground and ensure that the Earlham experience will continue for generations.
- Special correspondence from Earlham's president regarding the College's accomplishments, decisions and strategies.
- Invitations to special President's Circle and campus events, and regular electronic communications from campus.
