The Colonnade Society
Individuals who share the university’s vision of consistent excellence and whose annual gifts to any area(s) at Maryland total $1,000 or more are recognized with membership in the Colonnade Society. Alumni within five years of graduating from Maryland may join the society with gifts totaling $500 and current students may join with gifts totaling $100 annually. Corporations receive Colonnade Society status with gifts totaling $5,000 or more.

Whether your gifts come through the Terrapin Club or a departmental scholarship, Colonnade members are the catalysts that energize the university’s implementation of its ambitious 10-year strategic plan.
  • You help make it possible for students to receive the financial aid they need to stay in school.

  • You help bring the highest level of scholarship to the classroom.

  • You help foster extraordinary opportunities that broaden the student experience at Maryland.

Colonnade Society members are leadership donors who understand that tuition and state funding fulfill only about half of the institution’s operating budget and that much more is required for Maryland to operate as an exceptional public research university. By joining other leadership donors in the Colonnade Society, you help Maryland grow more self-reliant and resilient every day.

Colonnade Society members enjoy exclusive benefits, including a designated staff person for your inquiries.
