All gifts to Dominican University of California matter, and Giving Societies are one way for us to thank our most generous and steadfast donors. Through these channels, we honor alumni, parents and friends whose gifts help us accomplish Dominican’s mission.
The Acacia Society celebrates alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends who have made a gift — at any level, for any purpose — to Dominican for two or more consecutive years. As a token of the University's appreciation, members are invited to an annual Champagne Brunch to hear directly from students who benefit from their generosity.
When you establish a planned gift to the University or provide for Dominican in your will, we recognize you as a valued member of the Edgehill Society. Your far-sighted generosity will help sustain Dominican for new generations of students and faculty. Members are invited to special campus events and receive a special memento as an expression of our appreciation.
