Patrons of Excellence Club
The first structured donor club for Mississippi State University, the Patrons of Excellence Club was launched by the MSU Foundation in 1963. Since that time, the program has allowed the Foundation to build additional donor societies to honor donors as the university grows over time with increasing levels of private support. Each year, the names of donors at the Patrons of Excellence levels are published in the MSU Foundation’s Annual Report
Donors qualify for Patrons of Excellence membership by making an annual gift or pledge from July 1 of the current year to June 30 of the following year at any one of the following gift levels:
Patron’s Council — $5,000 to $9,999
