Seattle University’s President’s Club recognizes donors making leadership-level contributions to the university. In appreciation for their support, members are granted deeper engagement with the university and the distinction of the Loyola family crest.
The Loyola family—ancestors of St. Ignatius—were known for sharing their abundance with the community and surrounding wilderness. Their crest, featuring two wolves eating from a hanging pot, commemorates this generosity. At Seattle University, we use this symbol to honor our most generous donors: President’s Club members.
President’s Club members play a direct role in the university’s success. All across campus, they support the unique opportunities that shape Seattle University students into the purposeful leaders of tomorrow. Empower leaders for a just and humane world. Join today.
President’s Club: Donors giving $1,000 or more annually.
President’s Leadership Circle: Donors giving $5,000 or more annually.
G.O.L.D. President’s Club: Graduates of the last decade giving $500 or more annually. (Graduates of the Last Decade—“GOLD”—includes alumni who received their graduate, undergraduate, or certificate degree between 2010 and 2019)
Membership qualification is based on cumulative giving between January 1 and December 31. You may use multiple gifts to qualify, and gifts to all Seattle University funds as well as corporate matching gifts count toward your membership goal. Once qualification is reached, your membership will be active for the remainder of the calendar year, or if joining in November or December, the following calendar year. Please contact the Annual Giving department at 206-296-6301 or email@example.com with any questions.

If you are a long-time President’s Club member, some of the information above may be new to you. More details on this new system, which becomes active January 1, 2020, are detailed below. We value your support and know that change can be difficult. Our staff are here to help. Please reach out to us at 206-296-6301 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Beginning January 1, 2020 the President’s Club will transition from a rolling 12-month qualification and renewal system to a standard calendar year qualification and renewal system. The rolling 12-month system has been difficult for donors to understand and for staff members to regulate.
The new standard calendar year system will make your contributions easier than ever to track, aligns with the tax year to make your deductions smoother, and will allow our staff to dedicate more time to meaningfully connecting you with the university and updating you on the impacts of your gifts.
Demand for on-campus parking has continued to increase due to construction, the growth of our student body, and the popularity of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. In response to these demands, Public Safety is transitioning from physical passes to a virtual parking system. This system will save time by eliminating the mailing of physical permits and streamlining enforcement, which will be conducted via automatic license plate scanning technology.
Annual Giving is dedicated to maintaining the valuable President’s Club parking benefit within this new system, however benefits will look a little different:
To recognize the additional meaningful contributions of $5,000+ donors and simplify tracking for our recent graduate alumni, the traditional $1,000 level and nine recent graduate levels are being upgraded to a streamlined three tier system.
