President's Club

president's club

The President’s Club is Butler’s premier annual giving society that celebrates leadership donors who are committed to providing student scholarships, financial aid, and hands-on experiential learning opportunities that are essential to advancing Butler’s academic mission. Membership is based on cumulative annual gifts of $2,500 or more made during the University’s fiscal year, which runs from June 1 through May 31. Eligible gifts must be directed towards academic, scholarship, or student-life initiatives. 

Donor Circles

Membership in the President’s Club will extend Butler’s commitment to excellence and rich tradition of engaged education and will be recognized annually based on the following levels of support:

President's Circle
Executive Circle
Leadership Circle

With the exception of athletic scholarship support, athletic donations are recognized through the Bulldog Club, and not counted in the cumulative total for membership in the President’s Club.

In recognition of their leadership support, members of the President’s Club will have access to a variety of courtesies based on their giving circle:

  • Invitations to presidential and other special events

  • A dedicated liaison who can assist with membership, campus matters, and specialized arrangements such as personal campus tours and purchasing tickets for campus events
