This society honors donors who reached a cumulative of outright gifts of cash, securities, gifts in kind or a pledge totaling $5,000,000 and above.

Recognition is also given to those donors who have formally notified the university that they have included a $10,000,000 bequest to NDNU in their will and to those who have established a planned gift to benefit the University, such as a non-term life insurance policy or a charitable remainder trust with a value of $10,000,000.

Donors in the Taube Society will receive naming opportunities as appropriate, be recognized at the Donor Recognition event, in the University’s Honor Roll and will receive a commemorative gift.
