Donor Recognition

Thank You, Donors.

The generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends fuels a lively community of learning dedicated to spreading the sparks of education in the Catholic intellectual tradition.

The President's Society

The President’s Society recognizes donors who invest $1,000 or more annually in the University of Dallas. These leadership gifts support the mission of UD as we continue our dedication to the pursuit of wisdom, truth, and virtue as the proper and primary ends of education.


Support from the members of the President's Society is critical to ensuring we attract and retain the best faculty, enroll the top students, and provide the distinct classroom experience that makes us the University of Dallas.
