Giving Societies

Giving Societies are one of the means by which Catholic Central recognizes and thanks donors. Donations of any amount and for any initiative count towards donors’ membership in a Giving Society. Organized by the cumulative giving during the prior fiscal year, each Giving Society has its own array of member benefits. 

  • Dominican Spirit: $25,000+
  • President’s Society: $10,000-$24,999
  • Principal’s Circle: $5,000-$9,999
  • Dean’s List: $2,500-$4,999
  • Cougar Pride: $500-$2,499
1906 Society (exclusive to young alumni): $19.06+

The 1906 Society is open to Young Alumni (ages 18-39) who give to Catholic Central in a meaningful but manageable way — $19.06 or more annually for alumni ages 18-29, and $19.06 or more per month ($228.72 annually) for alumni in their 30s. Each year, there are a number of on- and off-campus events that give 1906 Society members opportunities to socialize, network, and hear about the latest exciting developments at Catholic Central.
