Patrons of the Keystone – Dean’s Circle

Patrons of the Keystone believe that education is central to building a better future for all. Patrons of the Keystone demonstrate their support of the college by committing a multi-year pledge of financial support to the Dean's Circle Fund.

Dean's Circle Logo (2)Each year, donations to the Dean’s Circle Fund provide the necessary resources for the college to exceed current levels of excellence in advancing its tri-fold mission of academic instruction, research, and outreach. Numerous scholarships are awarded each year to students who have excelled academically. Faculty members receive support in their efforts to build professionals who can serve as change agents.

Every graduate and friend of the College of Education is invited to become a Patron of the Keystone by joining the Dean’s Circle. There are three levels of Dean’s Circle commitment:

Distinguished Patron of the Keystone
pledge at least $2,500 per year

Honored Patron of the Keystone
pledge at least $1,000 per year

(for alumni within ten years of their graduation date)

All Patrons of the Keystone are recognized within the College of Education and on the college’s website. Patrons are also invited to attend various college events throughout the year. Distinguished and Honored Patrons are invited to an annual event with the Dean. Dean’s Circle contributions are fully tax-deductible and are processed through the Auburn University Foundation.
