Prepared for Life

The Presidentís Society is a special community of alumni leaders who sustain Bluffton with annual gifts totaling $1,000 or more, including matching gifts from their employers.

When you join the Presidentís Society, you will receive quarterly updates from President Harder about Blufftonís programs and progress. You will have opportunities to meet other Presidentís Society members and current students at social gatherings including the annual Presidentís Society dinner. And, most importantly, you will experience the satisfaction of knowing you are making a crucial difference in the lives of current students who go on to make a difference in our world.

Individuals, couples or organizations maintain membership with continued annual support during the fiscal year (July 1-June 30). Individual members receive credit for matching gift money from their employer and membership may be held jointly by spouses.
