The Pillar Society
Impact Generating Philanthropy
Kennesaw State University is truly grateful to benefit from the generosity of a committed community of faculty, staff, alumni, parents, friends and partners, and we celebrate those who contribute each year, without fail.
Gifts to Kennesaw’s annual fund – The Kennesaw Fund – are used annually where the need is the greatest, allowing the university to thrive and grow with each incoming class. In honor of the many devoted donors who support the Kennesaw Fund, KSU created the Pillar Society.
Pillar Society donors provide KSU with a foundation for educational excellence. Yearly contributions provide current-use dollars for scholarships, student life, technology, timely university opportunities and more.
Membership in the Pillar Society also offers giving versatility:
- Young Alumni: graduates of the last decade are eligible for membership at adapted
- Gift Designation: donors may designate their contribution in support of a specific
college, fund or initiative*
- President’s Parliament: this premiere giving club for undesignated support sustains the President’s flexibility to respond to immediate needs, unexpected opportunities, and emerging institutional priorities
Just as pillars are paramount to supporting structures or buildings, members of the Pillar Society make our university strong and successful, helping to shape the future of the institution every time you give.
*Gifts must be unrestricted to qualify for President’s Parliament level.
