Giving Societies
Mills College welcomes donors into the following gift societies to recognize the many ways you make a difference for Mills and our students.

Please note: Mills' fiscal year runs July 1 through June 30. Membership in the El Campanil Club and Cyrus and Susan Mills Society follows this calendar.

El Campanil Club
On July 1, 2013, the College launched a new loyalty club to recognize individuals who consistently include Mills in their giving. If you have made a gift of any amount in at least three consecutive fiscal years, including the current fiscal year, you become a member. You will be invited to a special event at Reunion and acknowledged for your participation in other ways. If you are an alumna, your membership in this club will be noted on the honor roll of donors your class agent sends out. This club is named for the campus bell tower, designed by Julia Morgan.

The Cyrus and Susan Mills Society
Named after the two presidents who built Mills College in the late 19th century with a vision of equal education for women, the Cyrus and Susan Mills Society honors individuals who give $1,500 or more in the current fiscal year.
