Donor Recognition

Recognizing our donors through a giving society is an important part of sustaining philanthropy at Excelsior College.

What does it mean to be a giving society member? With your gift at one of the giving society levels, you play an important role in the financial well-being of Excelsior College and demonstrate how much you value an Excelsior education.
