The USM Foundation Honor Club celebrates the philanthropy of The University of Southern Mississippi’s most generous benefactors. Established in 1985, the Honor Club is the major gift recognition society that honors those donors whose vision and passion for Southern Miss inspired them to support the University with a significant financial gift. Honor Club members have created countless opportunities for students, faculty and staff through their generosity. Whether creating a lasting legacy through an endowed scholarship or supporting faculty excellence, these patrons have helped make Southern Miss a premier research university of the Gulf South.
Honor Club membership is achieved when individuals whose cumulative giving reaches $10,000 or more and organizations whose giving reaches $50,000 or more. The Honor Club consists of eight giving levels ranging from Associates for Excellence up to the Gallery of Benefactors, honoring those whose cumulative gifts have topped the $1 million mark. As of March 31, 2014, the Foundation boasted more than 1,300 active members of its Honor Club.
