Annual Giving Recognition Societies

Cornell’s Annual Giving recognition societies acknowledge the commitment you have made to sustain the transformative liberal arts education every student receives at Cornell.

Recognition societies are based on the previous fiscal year, which runs July 1 - June 30. All recognition society members are listed in the annual class honor roll of donors, which is printed in the fall class letter.
