UCEAP Alumni and Friends

The John A. Marcum Society

The Marcum Society recognizes donors who have given any amount for the past two consecutive years.  The society is named in honor of John A. Marcum (1927 – 2013).  Under his leadership from 1990 to 2007, the number of students studying abroad through UCEAP increased substantially, and UC partnered with leading universities in Asia, Latin America, Africa and Europe to create new and more diverse opportunities for students to study, research and participate in overseas internships.

Loyal donors are the cornerstone of our success, providing the means by which UCEAP can carry out its mission to inspire students to explore and transform their lives, UC, and the world. In recognition of this important commitment, Marcum Society honors alumni giving to UCEAP with various degrees of loyalty — from our Charter members, who are just beginning their lifelong commitment to annual giving, to our Lifetime supporters, who have given to the university for 20 or more years.

Gifts of any amount to all areas of the university are counted towards Marcum Society membership. Consecutive years of giving are counted by fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.

Qualifying Levels

Charter: 2–4 years of consecutive giving
Milestone: 5–19 years of consecutive giving
Lifetime: 20 or more years of consecutive giving

Good Stewardship

We take our responsibility to ensure that all gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given seriously. We support the Donor Bill of Rights and believe that all donors have the right to receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition and to be assured that information about their donation is handled with confidentiality.
