Honoring Our Donors

The commitment of our loyal alumni and friends is crucial to expanding our mission and vision at the Penn State Alumni Association. Several giving societies University-wide emphasize our donors’ confidence in our work.

Mount Nittany Society

Named for Penn State’s most cherished natural landmark, Mount Nittany Society represents the pinnacle of philanthropy to Penn State, recognizing those individuals with an exceptional cumulative lifetime giving to Penn State.

Atherton Society

Estate gifts, and other planned gifts such as gift annuities, life insurance and charitable trusts, ensure continued growth and achievement for the University into the future.

The President’s Club

Established in 1991, The Penn State President’s Club honors the tremendous loyalty and generosity that our supporters have expressed through annual gifts to the University. President’s Club members are a distinguished part of the Penn State community whose annual leadership gifts demonstrate their ongoing commitment to academic excellence.

Golden Lion Society

Penn State donors are a distinguished group of people, but perhaps the most extraordinary are those in The Golden Lion Society. The Golden Lion Society represent a group of the University’s most loyal supporters—alumni who have given to Penn State for at least four years in a row or every year since graduation.
