Recognition Societies

The President’s Circle was established by President and Mrs. Barry M. Buxton to recognize generous alumni and friends who support their revitalization vision for Lees-McRae College. President’s Circle members are asked to provide and ask others to provide resources of time, leadership, and financial support needed to elevate Lees-McRae College.

The future of Lees-McRae College lies in the belief that this academic community is worthy of significant personal investment. As a member of the President’s Circle you will help set the standard for charitable giving in our community, and, by example, serve as an advocate and ambassador for the College.

With an annual contribution of $1,000 or more within the College’s fiscal year (June 1 – May 31), you will join this exclusive group of supporters. Among the privileges of membership are:

  • Special invitations to President's Circle events and campus programs
  • Reserved parking, seating, and special recognition at campus events
  • Subscription to the biannual President's Circe Newsletter
  • Recognition in the annual Honor Roll of Donors
