Western University Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

The 1878 Societies

The 1878 Societies honour Western’s most generous donors. Named for the year of Western’s founding, the Societies recognize those who have cumulatively given $25,000 or more to Western. Many members of The 1878 Societies also make annual contributions to a variety of programs and projects across the University.

We are grateful for all 1878 Societies members for their vision and leadership – and for their desire to see Western become extraordinary.
