George Mason University recognizes every donor.Special societies are listed below, so please consider being among our strongest supporters.
The Mason Society recognizes the university's most generous benefactors; alumni and friends in this society have made lifetime commitments exceeding $100,000.

The Legacy Society honors alumni and friends who have invested in the university's future through documented deferred or planned gifts, of any amount, in support of George Mason University. These gifts include bequests, trusts, annuities, and other plans in which the George Mason University Foundation has been named as beneficiary.
The university recognizes individuals who have generously contributed $1,000 or more during the fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) with membership in the President's Circle. Gifts and pledges totaling $1,000 and above qualify donors for membership. Donors can be recognized in both the Mason Society and the President's Circle, as annual gifts count toward Mason Society recognition.
