Pillars of the Peninsula Society

Donors with a cumulative lifetime giving level of $100,000 or greater are members of this distinguished group. Membership is for life, once the required giving level is realized. Exclusive benefits include:

  • Custom-designed and crafted Pillars of the Peninsula lapel pin
  • Recognition on the donor wall located at 24 Second Ave.
  • Recognition at Major Gifts Appreciation event

If you have questions or need more information about the Pillars of the Peninsula Society, contact Maria Damp,, (650) 403-4300 X4416.

There are numerous ways to give to become a Circle member. For all monthly donors, the level of giving is determined by the total amount donated for the year so monthly giving is an opportunity to join a higher level of Circle membership than a one-time gift might permit.
