The Société d’Honneur was established by the Board of Trustees to recognize the exceptional lifetime generosity of alumni, parents, and friends.
Since 2005–06, Lafayette has provided special recognition to alumni who demonstrate consistency in providing financial support to the College. All alumni who make gifts for five or more consecutive years qualify for membership in the Fleck Consistent Giving Society, named in honor of Cyrus S. Fleck Sr. (1899–2000), a devoted long-time Lafayette supporter, volunteer, and trustee.
The alumni who qualified as members of the Fleck Society in 2015-16 are acknowledged in this publication. Those members who have provided at least ten years of consistent support are also recognized with named bricks along the campus walkways bordering the Quad between Markle Hall and Colton Chapel. The more than 4,000 bricks currently in place have already made a very favorable impression on students, faculty, alumni, and campus visitors.
The current chairs of the Fleck Consistent Giving Society are Michael Whitman ’82 and Linda Tedori Whitman ’83.
The College recognizes with pleasure the generous support of alumni, parents, and friends who contribute at the following leadership levels. Matching gifts may be used to qualify for gift society levels. For alumni within 10 years of graduation, Marquis Society membership may be attained with a gift of $100 multiplied by the number of years since graduation.
