What is it?
The President’s Council is the College’s primary donor recognition society to demonstrate our sincere gratitude to our leading supporters.
How can I join it?
The President’s Council consists of those generous souls who contribute $1,000 or more during the course of an academic year (July 1 through June 30). Benefactors also become members of the President’s Council and the St. John Paul II Legacy Society by means of any estate or other deferred gift to Christendom. Membership earns our sincere gratitude and several important benefits.
