ACB Honors Its 2014 Annual Giving Society Donors

In 2014, to better honor and recognize our generous donors, ACB created four new Annual Giving Societies.  Levels are based on the amount of annual contributions to ACB.
 
The Annual Giving Societies include:

  • Leader’s Society, for those who donate between $250 and $999 annually;
  • Advocate’s Society, for those who donate between $1,000 and $2,499 annually;
  • Champion’s Society, for those who donate between $2,500 and $4,999 annually; and
  • President’s Society, for those who donate $5,000 or more annually.

In 2014, six donors achieved the President’s Society with total contributions of $87,566; seven donors achieved the Champion’s Society with total contributions of $20,001; 22 donors achieved the Advocate’s Society with total contributions of $25,825, and 158 donors achieved the Leader’s Society with total contributions of $68,505.  This totals 193 individuals or couples who gave a total of $201,897.
 
Below are the names of the donors in each level of the Giving Society.  ACB is most grateful for their donations; they will be honored at a reception at the conference and convention in Dallas in July.
