Loyal Bearcat Society

The Loyal Bearcat Society is a recognition society for philanthropic supporters of the UC Alumni Association (UCAA). "Red" level members, who donate $50 or more to a UCAA fund, receive a Loyal Bearcat card that offers an enhanced set of benefits for one year from the date of their gift.

Your annual gift may be designated to any UCAA fund, including the UC Fund for the Alumni Association (supporting our greatest needs and programming) or UCAA scholarships.

Your direct support of the UC Alumni Association through private donations is greatly appreciated. It enables us to further our mission of supporting the university by maintaining a strong, vibrant alumni community. Every great university needs a solid alumni foundation – and Loyal Bearcats are key to the overall success of UC.

William Howard Taft Society

The William Howard Taft Society recognizes and honors our biggest supporters – those who have donated more than $2,500 to the UC Alumni Association in their lifetimes. There are three levels:

  • Bronze: Alumni whose cumulative lifetime gifts to UCAA total $2,500 - $9,999
  • Silver: Alumni whose cumulative lifetime gifts to UCAA total $10,000 - $24,999
  • Gold: Alumni whose cumulative lifetime gifts to UCAA total $25,000 or more

All individuals who have been Life Members of the UC Alumni Association are grandfathered into the William Howard Taft Society.

Those in the William Howard Taft Society have available, in perpetuity, all the benefits that are available to Loyal Bearcat Society members, though your ongoing annual support is greatly appreciated.

To check your William Howard Taft Society status, please call 513-556-4344.
