The St. Augustine Society
The St. Augustine Society recognizes those individuals who make annual, leadership gifts of $1,000 or more thus enabling Austin to offer the highest quality educational programs to the young people in our care. Gifts at this level are a testament to the deep commitment YOU have to the school’s mission and to its future.
Membership in the St. Augustine Society is offered to anyone who makes a gift of $1,000 or more to the Austin Fund. Gifts from Society members are used to fund Austin’s need-based, tuition assistance program, athletics, STEAM, along with many other school enhancements. Matching gifts combine with an individual’s personal contribution to determine a donor’s level of gift club recognition.
We are deeply grateful to those individuals who are particularly committed to advancing the school’s long-term viability, and we are honored to recognize them for their generous support.
The St. Augustine Society recognizes eight levels of leadership giving:
Leadership Circle ($100,000+)
Friar Society ($50,000 - $99,999)
1951 Pride ($25,000 - $49,999)
Founder’s Club ($10,000 - $24,999)
Trustees’ Club ($5,000 - $9,999)
President’s Club ($2,500 - $4,999)
Crusader Club ($1,000-$2,499)
