Giving Societies

With the generous support of alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends Manchester University has been graduating leaders inspired to make the world a better place since 1889. Our giving societies have been established to recognize these donors who demonstrate their commitment to Manchester's mission through their philanthropic endeavors.


The Otho Winger Society was created to celebrate one of Manchester University's great leaders, and to recognize donors who have included Manchester in their estate plan or have established a deferred gift with Manchester University. Learn more about making your planned gift here


The President's Society honors the generous donors who have contributed $1,500+ to Manchester during the given calendar year. These gifts reflect an extraordinary commitment to the students, faculty, and staff of Manchester University. Join today

The Tower Society was established with deep gratitude for those who help ensure the strength and vitality of our University through unwavering support, leadership and cumulative gifts of $50,000 or more during their lifetime.
