True Tiger Society

TU’s Loyalty Giving Society

Paul Githongo ’09
True Tiger Society member Paul Githongo ’09 supports the Student Emergency & Food
Insecurity Fund every year. “I was fortunate to have a meal plan when I was a student.
I knew students who either couldn’t afford a meal plan or did not have enough meals
to feed themselves. After I graduated, that memory stuck with me,” Githongo says.
“I give back so students have what they need to create great memories at TU.”

True Tiger Society recognizes dedicated donors of two or more consecutive years. Contributions
may support any fund designation. Members of this society thrive on the knowledge
that they are sustaining TU and remaining loyal to an institution worthy of their
support. True Tigers fall within one of three tiers based on their level of loyalty:

  • Bronze: 2-5 consecutive years
  • Silver: 6-19 consecutive years
  • Gold: 20+ consecutive years

Founders Society

TU’s Annual Leadership Giving Society

Christopher ’93 and Jan Evans ’93
Founders Society members Christopher ’93 and Jan Evans ’93 support the TU Fund every
year. “Our gift helps the TU Foundation relieve some of the financial burden and costs
associated with attaining a college degree. When we make a gift to TU, we are giving
back to the very place that gave so much to us. Every dollar given helps to continue
the TU legacy,” the Evans say. 

Founders Society is TU’s leadership giving society for those individuals and organizations
with a strong affinity to see TU prosper. Founders Society members are those donors
who make annual, leadership level gifts. Members include individual donors of $1,000+
and organizations of $10,000+ per year. Contributions may support any fund designation.
Founders Society members receive invitations to engagement opportunities as well as
select communications.

1866 Society

TU’s Esteemed Annual Leadership or Lifetime Giving Society

David Diaz ’99
1866 Society member David Diaz ’99 says, “There are many in our community who don’t
recognize their own potential. Helping others see that potential can completely change
their life trajectory and ripple outward to impact generations to come. I firmly believe
that if you can help one person, you end up helping many.”

The 1866 Society includes TU’s most generous annual leadership or lifetime giving
donors whose commitment to TU’s success is an example to our community. Members of
the 1866 Society are individual donors of $10,000+ or organizations of $50,000+ annually
as well as individual donors with $50,000+ in lifetime giving. Contributions may support
any fund designation. 1866 Society members receive invitations to private engagement
opportunities as well as special communications.
