Society of the Arch

The Society of the Arch was founded in 2007 to recognize those who help provide a strong financial foundation for the University. Joining the Society of the Arch perpetuates the tradition of unrestricted giving and stands as the cornerstone for the Brescia Annual Fund. Gifts to the Annual Fund allow Brescia to provide extraordinary opportunities for learning and discovery, to extend the financial aid program to every student who needs it, and to help meet emerging needs and challenges as they arise throughout the year.

Membership in the Society of the Arch is open to alumni, friends, parents and community partners who contribute $1,000 or more during a single year to the University’s Annual Fund. Members are recognized as the most dedicated of Brescia’s supporters and have access to presidential receptions, dinners and many more opportunities to interact with the students and faculty in whom they so generously invest.

By joining the Society of the Arch, you too can make a difference in the lives of each of our students. Society of the Arch members last year helped us support 1,298 students through 59 academic programs, 18 athletic teams and $4.24 million in financial aid. We could not do what we do without the generosity of friends like you who are so deeply committed to Brescia University and to helping our students build successful careers, nourish strong families and positively impact their communities and the world around them. I ask that you prayerfully consider extending your faithful commitment, and in doing so, know that you will be helping to ensure that the Brescia Difference continues to shape lives and communities for many years to come.
