President's Circle

By becoming a member of the President's Circle - Drake's leadership-level giving society - you affect every aspect of the University and contribute directly to the experiences and success of each student.

President's Circle membership is open to any individual or corporation who gives a total of $1,000 or more to provide operational support to Drake in any given fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). Corporate matching gifts also count toward individual President's Circle membership. The society also has a board that serves as an advisor to the Office of Development. Visit the President's Circle Board page to learn more.

Why Members Give:

President's Circle members are invited to join Drake leaders at the annual Francis Marion Drake Society Dinner, where all leadership-level donors are recognized.
