The 1831 Society enjoyed a fourth-straight record-shattering year. This year, society members contributed more than $2 million to the University’s annual fund, up 40 percent over last year, says Leigh Ann Fibbe, assistant director for the annual fund. And membership soared above 1,000 for the first time in history.
For perspective, Fibbe says membership has almost doubled in five years. “Their gifts account for more than half of all money given to the annual fund.”
