Carillon Club

Oglethorpe’s Carillon Club recognizes alumni, parents and friends who distinguish themselves through their legacy of philanthropy for three or more consecutive years regardless of their level of giving. As a member, your consistent giving provides a vital base of support each year for scholarships and student assistance, faculty support, campus needs and improvements and more.

Carillon Club members receive window decals at the 3, 5, 10 and 20-year milestones as a means of celebrating their dedication and receive special recognition in the annual Honor Roll of Donors.
