Drew gratefully recognizes the loyalty and commitment of alumni, parents, faculty and staff, and friends of the university through the following donor recognition societies. Each year the university publishes The Honor Roll of Donors report to celebrate the contributions of the community to Drew’s important educational mission.
- The President’s Circle
- New Founder’s Society
- The Drew Society
- The Dendros Society
- The Blue & Green Club
The President’s Circle
In 1870 the McClintock Association began a fund raising campaign at Drew, which raised scholarship support in honor of John McClintock, Drew’s first president. Today the President’s Circle recognizes donors who have made cumulative lifetime gifts of $100,000 or more to the university.
The list of donors who belong to the President’s Circle is an honor roll of Drew’s most far-sighted and generous friends – friends who, over the years, have provided leadership to Drew’s various fund-raising campaigns, establishing scholarships, supporting programs, and funding buildings that have enabled the university to provide students with an exceptional education.
New Founder’s Society
The New Founders Society links Drew’s current benefactors to its early philanthropists, Daniel Drew and Arthur and Leonard Baldwin, whose vision and generosity established the university as we know it today. The New Founders Society gratefully recognizes alumni, parents, faculty and staff, and friends of the university who have provided for Drew through a bequest or life income gift, or who have named Drew as beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account.
Long before there was a Drew University, villagers in Bottle Hill, NJ called the oak woodland west of town The Forest. With clubs that reflect this heritage, the Drew Society honors present-day donors who contribute $1,000 or more annually to the University in the Forest, including corporate matching gifts.

The longevity and strength of a forest can be measured by counting the consecutive rings of its member trees, a process that is known as dendrochronology. Drew’s forest is no exception; here the rings are the dedicated alumni, parents, friends and organizations that sustain its growth year after year. The Dendros Society recognizes consecutive giving at any level by Drew’s most loyal supporters. Learn more >
The Blue & Green Club
The Blue & Green Club is the official booster club of Ranger Athletics and helps provide the resources Drew needs to be a leader among NCAA Division III programs. The Blue & Green Club gives alumni, parents and friends an opportunity to play an active role in supporting our outstanding student-athletes.
