Vincennes University Foundation Society
What is the VU Society?
The Vincennes University Society is an honorary society of unrestricted funds to the Vincennes University Foundation in support of the unique educational mission of Vincennes University. It was established by the Foundation for the purpose of demonstrating the Foundation’s appreciation for their unrestricted gifts as well as to promote the concept of such giving.
Vincennes University Society donors contribute $100 or more each year. In addition to being honorary members of the Society, donors are recognized in eight divisions according to their level of contributed support. The eight divisions are :
- President's Circle ($10,000 or more)
- Founder ($5,000 to $9,999)
- Executive ($2,500 to $4,999)
- Benefactor ($1,000 to $2,499)
- Director ($750 to $999)
- Fellow ($500 to $749)
- Associate ($300 to $499)
- Sponsor ($100 to $299) annually

Contributions to the Society are unrestricted charitable gifts which are motivated by a desire to support the University’s mission and the donors do not expect anything of material value in return. The most important dividend they receive as a result of their “investment” in the work of VU is the good feeling they have about themselves for having helped. Tax laws allow them to receive tax benefits as a result of their gifts and the Foundation takes special steps to keep them informed about new developments at the University.
