The University of Mississippi

Flagship Society

At the University of Mississippi, we recognize generous donors who contribute $1,000 or more annually to support academic scholarships and programs. These donors are now members of our Flagship Society — the University’s most prestigious annual giving recognition group.


Membership Opportunities

Flagship Society members give cumulative annual gifts of $1,000 or more during a single fiscal year (July 1—June 30) to any academic area of the University, excluding the Ole Miss Athletics Foundation.

Membership is based on household cumulative giving and is renewed each fiscal year. Corporate matching gifts count toward membership. UM staff and faculty can choose to give by payroll deduction by checking the option below.

Bronze $1,000 $83.33
Silver $1,848 $154
Gold $2,500 $208.33
Platinum $5,000+ $416.67

Membership recognizes alumni and friends who joined the Flagship Society from  July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. A total of 1,236 alumni and friends came together this past year as members to increase support for academic initiatives at Ole Miss. These donors serve as philanthropic leaders, ensuring current and future students benefit from life-changing educational opportunities. To our loyal donors, we thank you.
