St. Joseph Society      

It is by no accident that Calumet College of St. Joseph’s first donor recognition society is named after the schools’ patron. St. Joseph was an exemplary man who subordinated his own ambitions and desires to respond to God’s Will for him and fulfilled his responsibilities toward his family and community.  Established in 2010, the St. Joseph Society is our donor society that recognizes committed individuals whose annual gifts serve to shape the future of Calumet College of St. Joseph and its students.  Membership is extended to donors who have contributed a minimum of $1,000.00 during a single fiscal year. Gifts, pledge payments, and matching gifts received July 1 through June 30 of each fiscal year qualify donors that year for membership.

The College is proud to recognize the St. Joseph Society for their philanthropic commitment to Calumet College of St. Joseph.
