Philippine Duchesne Society


The Philippine Duchesne Society is Maryville University’s most distinguished annual giving club. The University recognizes donors who give $1,000 or more during one fiscal year (June 1 through May 31) to academic, co-curricular or athletic programs at Maryville. These funds are used to address the priorities of the University that Duchesne Society gifts make possible: experiential learning opportunities, annual scholarships, emerging programs, campus initiatives and much more.

Associate: $500-$999 (graduates of the last 10 years only)
Member: $1,000-$1,999
