Gift Clubs

Club Descriptions and Benefits

ORU’s Giving Tree, located in the Prayer Tower, honors members of three of the Gift Clubs.

Donors at every gift club level will be recognized in our Annual Report (unless they request anonymity). They will also receive a subscription to the ORU magazine.

Membership is available for those who support ORU during the university’s fiscal year (May 1 through April 30).

The Founder’s Club is for those donors who provide contributions of $25,000 or more per year. Benefits include:

  • Special invitation to a dinner with ORU’s Board Chair
  • An ORU lapel pin signifying their involvement in the Founder’s Club
  • Special communications
  • Having their names inscribed on ORU’s “Giving Tree”

The Chair’s Club is for those donors who provide contributions between $10,000 and $24,999 per year. Benefits include:

  • Special invitation to a dinner with ORU’s Board Chair
  • Invitations to special on-campus events 
  • A thank-you gift
  • Having their names inscribed on ORU’s “Giving Tree”

The President’s Club is for those donors who provide contributions between $2,500 and $9,999 per year. Benefits include:

  • Special invitation to a dinner with ORU’s president
  • A thank-you gift

The Sustainer’s Club is for those donors who provide contributions between $1,000 and $2,499 per year. All Sustainer’s Club contributions (unless otherwise designated) go into the annual fund. This fund helps ORU maintain the quality of its academic programs, retain outstanding students and faculty by keeping the campus (and the campus life experience) in top condition, and meet ongoing operating expenses so that an ORU education will be more affordable for current and future students. Our goal is to have 250 members in this club every year.
