About Bridge Builder Society

The Bridge Builder Society is the exclusive annual gift club of the Foundation recognizing members and friends who make annual contributions in the amount of $250 or more. The Society has four levels of membership – Ruby, Pearl, Emerald and Diamond – which are demarcated by dollar amounts to clearly recognize the financial generosity of those who are eligible for membership. Gifts to the Foundation’s Alumni Support Program, the Leadership and Membership Development Fund and chapter specific funds all qualify. Each member of the society received newsletters, invitations to special donor appreciation events, advance registration for Fraternity events, a special certificate, lapel pin and named recognition on the Donor Wall of Honor at Laurel Hall. In this way, we do more to thank those brothers who have made a vital annual commitment to support and play a crucial role in the future of our Fraternity.

Diamond: $2,500 and above
Emerald: $1,000 - $2,499.99
Pearl: $500 - $999.99
Ruby: $250 - $499.99
