Donor Recognition

At Baylor, it is important to us to recognize our generous donors. We understand that you have made choices--and sacrifices--to share with others. There are many ways we work to publicly recognize your gifts to Baylor University:
  • Endowed Scholarship Hall of Honor: When each endowed scholarship fund reaches $100,000, the University recognizes the named scholarship with a bronze plaque that is displayed on campus, and a matching plaque is presented to you or the honoree in appreciation for your invaluable support.
  • Endowed Scholarship Society: Donors are recognized for cumulative giving that exceeds $50,000 to endowed scholarships through this distinguished society.
  • 1845 Society: The 1845 Society recognizes alumni and friends who have made gifts of $1,000 or more during a calendar year. Honorees receive key information from the University and are honored during an annual reception.
  • Old Main Society: Including a gift to Baylor in any portion of your estate planning--through your will, trust, insurance policy, retirement plan, annuity or another method--qualifies you for membership in Baylor's Old Main Society.
  • Legacy Legends: Those who have made provisions for Baylor Athletics through their estate plans will be honored in Baylor Athletics' prestigious recognition society.
