Cupola Society


The Cupola Society is a circle of alumni, parents, and friends of the College whose leadership giving and enthusiastic commitment set an example and inspire others.

Cupola Society member philanthropic support collectively accounts for more than 70 percent of the Gettysburg Fund and 50 percent of the Orange & Blue Club, and supports students in every facet of their Gettysburg College experience.

We invite you to join Gettysburg College’s Cupola Society by making a gift of $2,500 or more. Alumni during their first 15 years out are able to gradually increase their giving over time while still qualifying for Cupola membership. See below for details.
