The Howard Society, named after two of Principia's earliest benefactors—Clarence and Minnie Morey Howard—honors those whose annual giving totals $1,000 or more. The Howards' steadfast and generous contributions provided critical support during Principia's fledgling years and later enabled the school to expand.
The Howards also hoped their contributions would inspire others to make leadership gifts. By joining the Howard Society, you fulfill that hope and extend their legacy of leadership giving. Contributions directly benefit students by meeting both current and long-range financial needs.
Along with the satisfaction of belonging to a community of alumni and friends devoted to sharing Principia's tradition of excellence with generations to come, Howard Society members receive the following benefits:
Howard Society members' contributions directly benefit students and faculty. Unrestricted gifts support every aspect of Principia, including the following:
Restricted gifts can be designated to support specific academic, athletic, and capital improvement priorities, including student aid, the endowment, and reunion giving programs.
Ultimately, however, the impact of leadership-level investments extends far beyond campus borders to the churches, communities, and countries where Principians live and work after they finish school. In short, Howard Society gifts make a difference around the world!
