K-State donor recognition societies

There are a number of donor recognition societies at K-State, some of which are universitywide and some that relate to a college or program. Certain societies recognize a combination of annual, lifetime and deferred gifts. Many donors belong to several of these groups. In all cases, the opportunity to honor donors advances the university’s mission and reputation.
