Gift 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. 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. Members enjoy benefits that recognize the impact their generosity has on Mills, including opportunities to engage with campus leaders, faculty, or students.

Membership Levels

Deans' Circle Annual donors of $1,500 to $4,999
Provost's Circle Annual donors of $5,000 to $9,999
President's Circle Annual donors of $10,000 to $24,999

The Aurelia Henry Reinhardt Society

This gift society is named after a transformative leader, the College's president between 1916 and 1943. If you have included Mills in your estate plans, either through a bequest intention or life income gift, you become a member. You are invited to a faculty presentation and breakfast with Cyrus and Susan Mills Society and other Aurelia Henry Reinhardt Society members, personal notice of Mills news of interest to you, up-to-date tax information related to charitable contributions, and, upon request, private gift-planning guidance tailored to your unique personal situation.
