Towson University’s Founders Society Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) is a group of recent graduates and current students from the last ten years (2005–2015) who believe in supporting their alma mater philanthropically. Founders GOLD membership is available to graduates from the last 10 years, as well as current students, who commit a yearly gift to the university. Membership in the program operates on a fiscal year basis from July 1–June 30.

Founders GOLD provides opportunities for recent graduates to network, learn, and give back to the college community.  Gifts may be made to any fund available in the Towson University Foundation.  An abridged version exists here.

Benefits of being a Founders GOLD member

  • Invitations to events throughout the year with the opportunity to network with other alumni, students, and university leadership.
  • 20% discount on clothing and gifts at the University Store.
  • The good feeling of knowing that you are leading the university by giving.

*Benefits are subject to change annually. A donor is recognized as a GOLD member with a gift or a pledge. You will receive your benefits with an outright gift, or upon the completion of a pledge.

Tommy Appel-Schumacher ’10 CBE

I choose to support the university as a Founders GOLD member because TU had done so many wonderful things for me during my time with the institution. The number of doors that have been opened, as well as the support I have received to achieve my goals and ambitions can be directly linked to my experiences at Towson University. From the playing field to the classroom, Towson prepared me with the life skills necessary to face any challenges and opportunities to come in my professional and personal life.
