One of many ways we recognize the invaluable support donors provide to The University of Tampa is by honoring them as members of one or more prestigious giving societies. These recognition groups celebrate the generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends who make gifts each year to support University operations and whose lifelong commitments help secure The University of Tampa’s future. We recognize that each and every gift, no matter what the size or the designation, makes a lasting impact in advancing our institution. For more information about any of these societies, please contact the Development office at
