Societies of Distinction

In 1884, Woodbridge N. Ferris wanted "to make the world better" and opened the doors to a university that bears his name and shares his vision.

We are challenged every day to meet this extraordinary ideal.

Ferris State University helps students imagine more by preparing them for successful careers, responsible citizenship and lifelong learning. Philanthropic support plays a vital role in the university's pursuit to provide a world-class education that opens doors of opportunity for its students.

A gift to Ferris State University is an investment that will "make the world better." It exemplifies leadership and compassion, two characteristics that embody our founder's vision. We recognize our generous and inspiring philanthropists with membership in the Ferris State University Societies of Distinction. Please join one of our special recognition societies at the most generous level you can consider and become our partner in this noblest of investments - our future. Because it matters.
