President's Club

President’s Club

In 2000, the UNM President’s Club began with 31 charter members, and was chaired at its inception by Doug and Sarah Brown. Today, the President’s Club continues to be an influential group that makes a real difference at UNM. Together, its members provide funds to support important initiatives that require a flexible and timely response. The Stay-A-Lobo program, which provides emergency grants to keep students enrolled at UNM, is a perfect example of this responsiveness.

Now in its second decade of providing a dependable source of flexible annual support to the UNM President’s Office, this group’s additional unrestricted giving provides support for a broad selection of areas across campus that are vital for the core priorities of the University: Student Success, Systemic Excellence, Healthy Communities, and Economic and Community Development.

As UNM fulfills its role as a leader in education and economic development in New Mexico, additional new opportunities will emerge, and the members of the UNM President’s Club are vital to that process. They are part of a prominent community that truly changes worlds.

Join the UNM President’s Club today!  Your minimum $5,000 annual gift supports vital university priorities.  Your contribution can entirely support the UNM President’s Club Fund or be split with a fund benefiting another University department or program.  Funds may be given directly through the UNM Foundation with gifts of cash, appreciated stocks, real estate, etc. or through a trust or foundation and United Way.  Matching gifts from current and former employers are welcome.

Special thanks to the members of President’s Club who, in addition to their annual support, also sustain the long-term growth of UNM with the establishment or contributions to 39 endowments.

These philanthropic leaders embody a holistic approach and financially contribute to both annual causes and funds which support UNM in perpetuity.
