Donor Societies

Why become a donor society member? Making an annual gift at one of the giving society levels within a fiscal year (July 1–June 30) allows you to play an important role in the financial well-being of Chatham and make a powerful statement about how much you value a Chatham education.

The Purple Line Society

Each year more than 700 people demonstrate their loyalty to Chatham by renewing their annual gifts. The Purple Line Society distinguishes you as part of this special community of Chatham donors whose annual gifts serve as the foundation for university-wide growth. Gifts of any amount, to any area of the university, given for two or more consecutive fiscal years qualify you for Purple Line Society participation. Involvement in the society is sustained as long as gifts are made to Chatham every fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) without interruption.
