TROY's 1887 Society recognizes donors for annual giving.

A new honor society has been established to recognize loyalty in annual giving to the Troy University Foundation.

The 1887 Society recognizes donors of any level who have contributed for three consecutive years.

“Since our University’s founding in 1887, proud alumni, friends, faculty and staff have given selflessly to ensure new generations of TROY students will have the opportunities to learn, grow and develop the skills necessary to make an impact in the world,” said Meredith Welch, Director of Annual Giving and Special Projects.

In recognition of the contributions, donors will receive a special Society lapel pin, a commemorative certificate, invitations to special donor events, seminars, games and other events on campus. More than 800 donors have already received a recognition package and others will be mailed when donors reach the three-year milestone.

All donations are counted toward membership in the 1887 Society, regardless of amount or where the donation is direction. 

“By giving annually, donors assist us in our commitment to transforming our students’ lives. Giving consistently allows a donor to play a crucial role in the achievements the University and thousands of students who call Troy University home,” Welch said.
