Gallaudet deeply appreciates those who support the University by giving throughout the year. One way in which the University recognizes its supporters is through an annual Honor Roll of Donors publication included in the spring Gallaudet Today magazine.
In the Honor Roll of Donors, Gallaudet recognizes those who have joined our giving groups. Membership in these groups is based on levels of lifetime and annual giving.
