The Citadel Foundation's
Leaders in Philanthropy

Click the links below to view the new and current members of The Citadel Foundation’s four lifetime giving societies as well as The Citadel Legacy Society and the Order of the Tartan:

The Society of 1842 ($1 million and higher)

Since its founding in 1842, The Citadel has molded cadets into citizen-soldiers whose guiding principles learned in the barracks, in the classroom and on the parade field serve their families, their communities, their professions and their country with distinction. The Society of 1842 is The Citadel’s most prestigious giving society.

The Mark Clark Society ($500,000 - $999,999)

General Mark W. Clark became president of The Citadel after a brilliant career in the U.S. Army. During his tenure (1954-1965), The Citadel achieved international recognition, and the Corps of Cadets increased to the maximum capacity of the barracks. One of General Clark’s most enduring accomplishments was the founding of the Cadet Honor Code, whereby a cadet does not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do.

The Star of the West Society ($250,000 - $499,999)

Citadel graduates have served their country in every conflict since the Mexican War. Named for the historic Civil War action led by a detachment of Citadel cadets, the Star of the West monument on Summerall Field commemorates all Citadel cadets and graduates who have died in defense of their country and recognizes the strong call to service demonstrated by Citadel men and women. 

The Summerall Society ($100,000 - $249,999)

General Charles Pelot Summerall (1867-1954) assumed the presidency of The Citadel in 1931 after retiring as chief of staff of the U.S. Army. During his 22-year tenure as president, the campus was greatly expanded to include many of the buildings that shape The Citadel footprint today, including Summerall Chapel, Capers Hall, LeTellier Hall, and McAlister Field House.

The Citadel Legacy Society (Documented Estate Gifts)

The Citadel Legacy Society recognizes alumni and friends who support The Citadel with deferred gifts. Through their generosity and foresight, legacy donors help to secure the future of the institution through a variety of estate planning tools. The Citadel Legacy Society is open to individuals who have included The Citadel in their estate planning and who provide the college with documentation of their gift.

The Order of the Tartan (Consecutive Giving)

The Order of the Tartan recognizes those donors who have shown their loyalty and steadfast commitment to The Citadel by making an annual gift of any dollar amount every year for 25 years or more.
