Alumni Supporting the College of Pharmacy

College of Pharmacy Dean’s Giving Circle

The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy has always aimed to recognize generous donors who support students, faculty, research and the organization on an annual basis. Building on this tradition, the College is excited to announce the Dean’s Circle Giving Societies, which will serve as the framework for recognizing donors on an annual basis. Recognition in one of the Dean's Circle giving societies serves to celebrate generosity and honor the individuals and corporations who choose to invest in the future of pharmacy at the University of Minnesota. 

Dean’s Circle Giving Societies

  • CMC Society: Annual giving up to $999* (*includes legacy Century Mortar Club Life Members)
  • Weaver Society: $1,000-$4,999
  • Cooper Society: $5,000-$9,999
  • 1892 Society: $10,000+

Structured to celebrate giving at all levels that helps advance the College of Pharmacy, the Dean’s Circle giving societies will provide donors with meaningful experiences and opportunities designed to showcase the impact of their generosity. We are excited to celebrate the inaugural year of the Dean’s Circle giving societies when we recognize our donors from the 2020-2021 academic year later this fall in the next edition of the Pharmacy Record.

Students and donors alike noted how good it was to come together in celebration, even in the virtual format. For those who were unable to attend this spring, the event was recorded and you can view the celebration
