Donor Recognition Societies

Philanthropy has played a significant role in Jefferson’s successes since the University’s founding in 1824. Contributions from our most loyal supporters have provided the resources to help Jefferson become a national leader in research, education and patient care.

President's Club
Donors join this distinguished group when they make an annual gift of $2,500 or more in the fiscal year. President’s Club members provide valuable resources for students, researchers and clinicians while sending a message to others that Jefferson is an institution worthy of investment.
