The Centenary Society

Centenary University’s proud history is filled with examples of extraordinary people coming together to do remarkable things. The Centenary Society was created with this legacy in mind. Society members share our vision, entering into a unique partnership with the University and taking the lead to provide financial resources that assist Centenary in fulfilling its mission.

Centenary Society members benefit from upper tier amenities, including exclusive communication with the president and other University leaders, invitations to special events and social gatherings, personal visits, and more.

Gifts of $1,000 or more made during the University’s fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) qualify donors for membership in The Centenary Society. Benefactors who contribute $100,000 or more over a lifetime are also eligible for membership.
