Conwell Society

The Opportunity to Lead
Temple University invites you to join the Conwell Society by making an annual commitment of $1,000 or more ($500 or more for graduates of 2002-2011). Your gift will have a direct impact on the experience of
today's Temple students, and you will help the university strengthen its tradition of private financial support, which is vital to its long-term growth and success.

No group is more vital in sustaining Temple than the members of the Conwell Society, a circle of leading donors who provide crucial support to the university and set an example of philanthropy that is inspiring to their fellow alumni and friends.

For Young Alumni
Temple University invites graduates of the past 10 years to begin their own tradition of giving at a leadership level. With an annual commitment of $500, Young Alumni members enjoy the same recognition and privileges afforded to all Conwell Society members.

Be a Part of the Conwell Society
You may designate your gift for unrestricted use or for any specific priority you choose, supporting a college or school within the university or a department or program. One hundred percent of your gift will directly benefit your area of choice. When you give at the Conwell Society level, you immediately join a distinguished circle of Temple alumni and friends who are active in the life of the university and eager to help shape its future. As a member, you will be invited to attend exclusive gatherings and special cultural and sporting events throughout the year. Moreover, as a member of the Conwell Society, you become a vital fixture in today’s and tomorrow’s Temple University.

A Powerful Vision
When he began instructing seven eager young students in 1884, Russell H. Conwell created the institution that would become Temple University. In doing so, he brought to life a center of learning distinguished in its excellence that provides opportunity to students of all backgrounds and means.

Today’s Temple
More than 125 years later, Temple University continues to evolve and to excel, and Conwell’s vision remains its guiding force. Now serving more than 39,000 students—striking in their talent and diversity—the university continues to stand as a gateway, offering access to professional achievement and personal fulfillment.
