Black and Gold Society


Loyalty is the tie that binds the University of Maryland community. Throughout our history, dedicated alumni and friends have given to show their commitment to Maryland students,faculty and programs.

We encourage you to join these devoted supporters by making a gift of any amount—to any fund—year after year. By supporting the university annually, you demonstrate what it means to truly believe in Maryland. And for your consistent support each year, you will be recognized in the Black and Gold Society.



Anyone who makes a gift of any size to the university in at least two consecutive fiscal years (July 1 to June 30) is included. You can choose any fund to support, including gifts to the Terrapin Club Scholarship Fund, and you can support different programs from year to year. Annual pledge payments also qualify if they are received prior to June 30th.
