Black and Gold Loyalty Circle


Loyalty is the tie that binds the University of Maryland community. Throughout our history, dedicated alumni and friends have given their time and talent 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 Loyalty Circle.


Who is included in the Black and Gold Loyalty Circle?

Anyone who makes a gift of any size to the university in at least two consecutive fiscal years (July 1 to June 30).


Do gifts to the Terrapin Club Scholarship Fund count?

Yes. You can choose any fund to support.


Can I support different programs every year?

Yes. All gifts are important, no matter their focus or size.


Do pledges count?

Yes, if you make annual pledge payments. Remember that pledges must be fulfilled by June 30 to count for that year.
