1851 Club Logo

During fiscal year 2010-11, Ripon College established the 1851 Club to recognize alumni, parents and friends whose leadership financial support helps secure Ripon’s proud heritage and tradition of academic excellence, now and well into the future.

Membership in the 1851 Club is offered to those who support the College at or above the $1,000 level in a given year or whose lifetime support is $50,000 or more. Membership in the 1851 Club also is offered to young alumni who have supported the College at a level equivalent to $100 for each year post-graduation. For instance, for someone who graduated five years ago, a gift of $500 or more will qualify the alumnus for membership in the 1851 Club, and a gift of $600 or more would be needed to renew the membership next year.
