Towson University’s Founders Society Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) is a group of current students and recent graduates from the last ten years (2005- 2014) who believe in supporting their alma mater philanthropically and who do so at a leadership level. Founders GOLD membership is available to current students and graduates from the last 10 years who commit a yearly gift to the university between July 1- June 30.
Founders GOLD provides opportunities for recent graduates to network, learn, and give back to the college community. Gifts may be made to any fund available in the Towson University Foundation. An abridged version exists here.

I choose to support the university as a Founders GOLD member because TU had done so many wonderful things for me during my time with the institution. The number of doors that have been opened, as well as the support I have received to achieve my goals and ambitions can be directly linked to my experiences at Towson University. From the playing field to the classroom, Towson prepared me with the life skills necessary to face any challenges and opportunities to come in my professional and personal life.
