President's Circle

In 1972, Leonard H. White ’41 formed the President’s Circle (then called the President's Advisory Council) to recognize those that provide support to the university at a leadership level, thereby allowing the university’s President to successfully meet the challenges of the present and future.

Today, the President’s Circle is an influential community of WPI's most devoted and generous alumni, parents, and friends who, through their leadership annual support, provide the critical resources necessary to advance our mission to transform lives, turn knowledge into action to confront global challenges, and revolutionize STEM. Together, members make a profound difference on every corner of our campus and create extraordinary opportunities for our talented students. 

We are proud to recognize donors whose annual gifts to WPI total $2,000 or more with membership into the President’s Circle (see graduated giving levels* for students and early career alumni).  

Membership courtesies include:

  • Invitations to exclusive stewardship events
  • Early registration for signature events like Reunion Weekend and Homecoming
  • Giveaways and other surprises throughout the year

Additional Information

Membership is based on the total of an individual’s personal gifts and corporate matching gifts during a single fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).  

*To encourage leadership giving among our students and youngest alumni, their membership in the President’s Circle can be secured at the following giving levels: 

  • Current students to 5 years after graduation: $100
  • 6 to 10 years after graduation: $500
  • 11 to 15 years after graduation: $1,000
