Founded in 2007, Muhlenberg’s Lifetime Giving Society celebrates our most generous donors and the impact of their cumulative giving. The society boasts more than 540 members including alumni, parents, friends, foundations, corporations, organizations and churches. 

Recognition is given to individuals whose cumulative lifetime giving to Muhlenberg has reached or exceeded $100,000. The Society is comprised of five giving circles. In 2022, the circle names were updated to each reflect an iconic location or feature of Muhlenberg College, and the fifth and highest circle level was added as a result of Boundless: The Campaign for Muhlenberg.

All new members of Muhlenberg's Lifetime Giving Society are inducted at the annual Lifetime Giving Society Dinner. Members receive a lifetime invitation to this event and have their names publicly recognized on campus plaques as well as listed in various publications.
