Cornerstone Society


Loyal donors are the cornerstone of Roanoke College's success.  In 2015 the Cornerstone Society was introduced to honor those individuals who have supported the College, through the Roanoke Fund, for a minimum of three consecutive years.

In its inaugural year, Roanoke is pleased to welcome over 2,100 charter members. Thank you to those generous individuals who understand that their annual investment in Roanoke transforms lives.

To attain Society membership, simply make a gift, of any size, to the Roanoke Fund for a minimum of three consecutive years.  Consecutive years of giving are counted by fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.

Individuals who made a gift each year between July 1 and June 30 since fiscal year 2015 (July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2015) are charter members.  To sustain your membership, make a gift every fiscal year.  Gifts of cash, securities, insurance premiums, and matching gifts are counted toward membership.  Gifts directed to endowment or building projects do not count toward society membership.
