William & Mary deeply appreciates each and every gift from our incredible alumni, students, parents and extended community. Your generosity increases scholarship offerings for students, provides funds to support scholarly endeavors for faculty, augments academic programs, and enhances current facilities and helps build new ones. W&M values your contributions to our community and we operate in accordance to the Donor Bill of Rights.
Through William & Mary Giving Societies, we recognize annual gifts from individuals and corporations that support all areas of the university. For all societies, membership is determined by gifts made during the previous fiscal year, which is from July 1 - June 30. For fiscal year 2016, which began July 1, 2015, there are several new giving societies that help W&M acknowledge and celebrate our donors and the impact of their gifts.
More than 42,000 donors made gifts to William & Mary during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2016. William & Mary is truly grateful for every gift from our alumni, students, parents and extended community.
