President's Circle

Lamar University AdvancementThe Lamar University President’s Circle was established by the university’s 15th president, Dr. Kenneth R. Evans, to honor and recognize individuals who have made a commitment to the success of Lamar students.  Donors support the strategic priorities that are most meaningful to them. 

Individual donors are touching lives every day with gifts that support academics, scholarships, research, internships, and more.  Members of the President’s Circle are taking the lead among Lamar’s most important supporters with their generous commitment. 

President’s Circle members will be afforded special privileges which include special communications, preferred seating at some university events, invitations to special activities and unique opportunities to interact with students.  Membership is open to individuals making personal gifts, or gifts through family foundations.  Each membership level may be met through a single contribution (qualifies for that level membership for a five year period) or though a pledge of five annual payments.  Gifts received beginning June 1, 2013 may be included towards any membership level.
