Special Program Information For Those Who Have Missed Giving Years...
At the age of 180, it's not surprising that Stephens College has had her share of ups and down. From our earliest years as a Baptist school, to some bumpy times in recent decades, Stephens has triumphed over her challenges to emerge stronger, more nimble, and more deeply dedicated than ever to her core mission: preparing young women for the lives that await them. It's that consistent commitment to her mission and her values that has motivated so many of our friends and alumnae to support Stephens through good times and bad; The Treasure Society recognizes their unwavering dedication, year after year. Other members of our community have expressed their support for Stephens in more intermittent ways. Some contributed to Stephens for consecutive decades, and then a few years went by during which their generosity found other beneficiaries.
Today, they're back with us, once again consistent contributors to Stephens. And they believe, with all of their hearts, that they have expressed their loyalty to Stephens throughout the years in ways that have earned them a place in The Treasure Society. As we initiate this important new recognition of donor loyalty, we understand those feelings. So we have created a special one-time opportunity to allow these very special Stephens donors to join The Treasure Society at significant levels, despite occasional lapses in their annual giving. By choosing now to make a single gift that reflects a minimum contribution of $50 for each year you missed since your inaugural gift to Stephens*, you can restore your record of annual giving to Stephens and claim your rightful place in the directory of our most loyal supporters.
Because you understand that every year matters. And we understand that there is more than one way to express your loyalty to Stephens.

*Sursum Society membership is based on gifts made starting in 1986 when the college began tracking gifts electronically. Our most stalwart supporters who were giving prior to 1986 have our thanks and admiration. Please also note that the deadline to participate in this one-time opportunity is June 30, 2013.
