President’s Council

The President’s Council consists of benefactors who make a total yearly gift of $1,000 or more in support of Thomas Aquinas College.

For nearly half a century, members of the President’s Council have played a vital role in continuing the founders’ two bold commitments: first, to accept students of all financial backgrounds, and second, to do so without any direct state or federal funding.

Every year members’ gifts provide hundreds of financial aid scholarships to students in need. Thousands of graduates, now helping to renew the Church and world, owe their education to the generosity of the President’s Council.

The Council also plays a key role in campus upkeep, ensuring that TAC’s two iconic campuses retain their reputation for beauty and order. In many ways, the College’s past and future successes rely upon the generosity and prayers of these patrons.

Those who join the Council’s ranks become special partners in Thomas Aquinas College’s mission.
