The Roundtable Society

The Roundtable Society is a distinguished University membership, recognizing annual leadership donors whose contributions help forge Clarkson’s path toward excellence. Recently revitalized with new donor-centric recognition, an exciting Salon program that explores leading-edge topics, enhanced member benefits, and insider opportunities to learn about and influence Clarkson’s future, The Roundtable allows individuals to connect as they play an integral role in sustaining the University’s mission in higher education.


As a Roundtable member, you are the essential element in Clarkson’s formula for success. Each year, about 91 percent of the gifts Clarkson receives comes from individuals contributing at the Roundtable level. Roundtable members are truly the guardians of the Clarkson degree, ensuring its value for today’s students and alumni and elevating its impact for the future. We invite you to join the rejuvenated Roundtable today by making a qualifying gift and expanding your influence as Clarkson University continues to evolve to excellence.

The Roundtable recognizes visionary donors who make annual leadership gifts to The Clarkson Fund or for a designated purpose. Leadership gifts make a significant difference at Clarkson and are within reach for many donors. When you become a member of The Roundtable, you will receive the following benefits:

  • Insider access to annual premier content
  • Invitation to attend the Roundtable Luncheon and President’s Leadership Reception during Reunion Weekend
  • Invitation to leadership events
  • Two tickets to a Golden Knights hockey team (home or away)

Roundtable Salons

At the heart of Clarkson University’s success is its people and the relationships they create personally and professionally. At each Roundtable Salon we strive to provide information on a topic of interest to the Clarkson community as well as provide an opportunity to socialize and network with Clarkson alumni and current students. The Salons are a way for us to express our appreciation to our valued supporters by offering a chance to continue engaging with the University while serving as a showcase of Clarkson, faculty, staff, students, and alumni.

Members of the Roundtable Society receive premiere content generated at the Salons as a benefit of their membership. All Roundtable members, even those who cannot be in attendance, will receive a Premier Content Report that includes topics discussed at the event as well as insights provided by guest speakers and panelists. This is a small way Clarkson University can show its appreciation for the generous support of Roundtable Society members.

Roundtable Society members are invited to join their Clarkson colleagues at our future Salons. For more information regarding upcoming Salons, please contact
