Leading by Example

We honor our most committed alumni, parents, and friends through Middlebury’s donor recognition societies.

THE 1800 Society honors alumni who support Middlebury at a leadership level. Society members are invited to special events and are listed in the online Donor Honor Roll.

The Panther Society offers specific membership levels for young alumni (one to nine years postgraduation) according to the number of years since graduation. One year postgraduation is $100; two years is $200; and nine years post graduation is $900.

The True Blue Society recognizes Middlebury’s most loyal donors, who have made gifts consistently for at least the last three years. True Blue donors are the foundation of Middlebury’s Annual Giving program.

The Cane Society recognizes individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to Middlebury’s future by including the College in their estate plans. Members have included Middlebury in their wills, named the College to receive proceeds from life insurance policies and retirement plans, and established charitable life-income gifts to benefit Middlebury. All Cane Society members are invited to a special luncheon held during Reunion Weekend.
