Giving Recognition Societies
Webster University offers many ways of being recognized for your significant contributions. Whether it is through the Daniel Webster Society or by leaving a Legacy for others through your estate, Webster recognizes your support.
Daniel Webster Society
The Daniel Webster Society (DWS) recognizes and celebrates Webster University donors who have made gifts of $1,250+ throughout the University's fiscal year. DWS members are among the most committed and loyal philanthropic leaders in supporting the Annual Fund, funding the backbone of advancing Webster’s mission, whether they invest in scholarship support, educational resources, faculty development, improvements to the University’s academic facilities or any of Webster’s five schools and colleges.
Benefits & Events: DWS Members enjoy exclusive benefits and insider access to University developments and the direct impact of their generosity on the lives of students. Events are held in St. Louis for alumni, parents and friends. Many of these events included VIP reservations for DWS members; some are exclusive to DWS members.
The Legacy Society honors alumni, parents, and friends who, through thoughtful estate and financial planning, ensure that resources will be available to support Webster far into the future. Gifts might include stocks or bonds, real estate or life insurance.
