The life of a great institution is punctuated by times of extraordinary accomplishment that indelibly shape and define its future. These exceptional accomplishments are made possible through the philanthropic resources provided by the distinguished members of the President’s Circle.
Across the country and indeed, the world, 3000 alumni, parents and friends stood up and became civic and community leaders through their membership in the President’s Circle. Through their generosity and leadership, they were able to enable students to become the first in their families to attend college. They were able to enable groundbreaking research that someday will cure a host of diseases. They were able to enable our students with state-of-the-art technology that make a University of Miami education among the very best in the country.
Your leadership gift each year allows this university to remain in the upper echelon of elite American academic institutions. On behalf of our terrific students, fabulous faculty and everyone else who works hard every day to produce these extraordinary accomplishments, thank you for your interest in the President’s Circle.

About the President's Circle
The President's Circle was founded in 1994 by a group of dedicated University supporters in the tradition of leadership immortalized by our founding fathers, including George E. Merrick. This prestigious organization encourages and recognizes annual charitable giving for the benefit of the University of Miami. It aims to encourage excellence in higher education through the annual financial support of scholarships, financial aid, and other academic program enhancements.
