Leadership Giving

President’s Circle


The President’s Circle is a prestigious group of alumni, parents and friends of the University whose leadership giving and enthusiastic commitment to Fairfield University set an example and inspire others.

‌The philanthropic support of members collectively accounts for more than 80% of The Fairfield Fund, and 85% of all gifts to the University. These contributions support our students in every facet of their educational experience and make a Fairfield education a reality for many.

We invite you to join The President’s Circle by making a gift of $1,000 or more. All contributions received from July 1 to June 30 (our fiscal year) – including matching gifts – qualify for membership. Monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual payment schedules may be set up.
