Henderson's giving societies program began in 2004 with the creation of The Heart Club, a Lifetime Giving Society recognizing donors who have generously donated gifts totaling $10,000 or more to Henderson State University.
This year we are excited to introduce Annual Giving Societies to recognize individuals taking a leadership role every year in ensuring the strength and future of Henderson State University. We invite you to lead a new tradition of annual giving by joining one of these societies.
What does it really mean to be a giving society member? Making an annual gift at one of the giving society levels allows you to play an important role in the financial health of Henderson and make a powerful statement about how much you value a Henderson State University education.
Annual Giving Societies
Giving society members will receive recognition in and a print copy of the Annual Impact Report as well as a print copy of The Spirit alumni magazine. Additional benefits specific to giving level are listed below.
Giving society recognition will be made at the end of each fiscal year (June 30) and is based on cumulative giving for the year.
The Heart Club
The Heart Club is a lifetime giving society comprised of individuals, corporations, and foundations that have generously contributed $10,000 or more to Henderson State University.
This year we introduce two new giving societies to The Heart Club, recognizing cumulative gifts over $500,000.
The Holly Society
The Holly Society honors and celebrates alumni and friends who have included a gift for Henderson in their estate plans.
These gifts take many forms, including bequests by will, charitable trusts, retirement plans, life insurance policies and more. Holly Society donors may direct their gift to establish a named endowed fund at Henderson, forever etching their family name in the history of Henderson State University. Bequests can also provide general support for Henderson or fund a program, project or area of study that is important to the donor.
Once a bequest is received, the donor is posthumously given membership into the Spirit Society, Centurium Society, President’s Society, Founder’s Society or 1890 Society.
