Founder's Circle

As a part of the Palmer Annual Giving Society, leadership donors propel the chiropractic profession and Palmer College to new heights. Donors who make leadership gifts of $1,000 or more in a fiscal year are invited to join the Founder’s Circle.

There are two levels of distinction in the Founder’s Circle:

  • Silver: $1,000 to $2,499
  • Gold: $2,500 and above

As a Founder’s Circle Silver member, you’ll enjoy all benefits of the Palmer Annual Giving Society, and:

  • Have opportunities to share your story in College publications and online
  • Receive a commemorative lapel pin recognizing your first gift of $1,000 or more
  • Receive an annual donor-impact report
  • Receive invitations to special events during annual Homecoming festivities

Founder’s Circle Gold members receive additional acknowledgment through:

  • Special recognition on honor rolls and during Homecoming
  • Special access to College-hosted events and activities

Members include individuals and businesses who make a gift during the current fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). Membership is based on annual giving. Corporate matching gifts count toward an individual’s recognition level.

When you join the Founder’s Circle, you provide essential resources that sustain every aspect of the Palmer experience, including student well-being, instruction, research and innovation. You provide leadership that ensures Palmer continues to fulfill its commitment as a The Trusted Leader in Chiropractic Education®.
