What is the Leadership Circle?
Zags who make donations totaling $1,500 or more over the course of an academic year are members of the Leadership Circle.
Leadership Circle gifts make up 70% of the annual funds supporting students, making the University less tuition-dependent, and reducing student debt.
Some people direct their gift(s) to a specific school, college or named scholarship — all wonderful ways to make an impact. But when you make your Leadership Circle gift toward unrestricted funds, you know that your gift has helped to support everything at Gonzaga, including its students' unrestricted future.
Leadership Circle members receive exclusive invites to Gonzaga campus events, lectures and student meet-and-greets.
It starts with YOU. Your Leadership Circle membership is a critical investment that helps Gonzaga students become the ethical leaders our world needs most.
