Samford is incredibly grateful for the generosity of donors that make it possible for Samford to operate. We are proud to have three giving societies to thank and acknowledge the individuals who invest in our university: President’s Society, Bishop Society and Cornerstone Society.
The President’s Society is comprised of donors that uphold Samford’s longstanding mission and invest in its future through a $1,500+ gift to the university each fiscal year, which takes place July 1 – June 30. The President’s Society encourages and strengthens the engagement of individuals and organizations in the Samford community. It also provides steady annual giving to strengthen Samford University. In additional, the generosity of these donors makes it possible to fulfill Samford’s mission and continue to provide students with learning opportunities and resources in a Christ-centered environment.
In 2017, Cumberland School of Law launched the Bishop Society, named for long-time professor and dean, Thomas Brad Bishop ’61, J.D. ’71. Since its inception, the purpose of the Bishop Society has been to collectively gather contributions to provide scholarship support and public interest fellowships to deserving law students, upgrade technology and law school facilities, support the preparation and travel of Cumberland’s trial and other teams, and support faculty research. Thanks to Professor Bishop’s generosity of spirit and dedication to Cumberland, and member contributions, the Bishop Society will continue to support aspiring legal students to attend Cumberland School of Law and thrive in their law school experiences.
The Samford cornerstone serves as a physical anchor and a spiritual reminder of who we build our foundation on, Jesus Christ. A house is only as strong as its foundation, and Christ is our Cornerstone.
You also have an opportunity to build upon Samford’s foundation with a legacy gift. Any form of legacy gift, whether it be a bequest, trust, charitable annuity, insurance, IRA or stocks and bonds, will be used to further the mission of Samford for generations. We can all strengthen Samford, one brick at a time.
There are numerous ways to support students at Samford University including scholarships, academic programs, Samford CARES, athletics and more. For more information on campus initiatives and other giving opportunities, please visit Samford’s main giving page.
