Donor Recognition Societies

Donor Recognition Societies

Philanthropy has played a significant role in Jefferson’s successes since the University’s founding in 1824. Contributions from our most loyal supporters have provided the resources to help Jefferson become a national leader in research, education and patient care.

President's Club

Jefferson President's Club

Donors join this distinguished group when they make an annual gift of $2,500 or more in the fiscal year. President’s Club members provide valuable resources for students, researchers, and clinicians while sending a message to others that Jefferson is an institution worthy of investment.

The 1824 Society

Jefferson established the 1824 Society to honor individuals who have included Jefferson in their estate plans. By providing benefits that last beyond a lifetime, donors ensure that Jefferson will remain a superior academic medical center. Supporters who have informed us of their estate plans receive invitations to special events.
