The Joseph T. Burch Society was established in 2008 to encourage giving to the Division of Student Affairs by former students and friends. It brings together individuals who share a desire to provide enduring and generous support and services for the Division.
The Joseph T. Burch Society is named in honor of Mr. Joseph T. Burch, former Dean of Students and administrator at UK. Mr. Burch had a highly distinguished forty year career in Student Affairs at the University. He was an administrator, counselor, mentor and the moving force behind the creation of many of the Student Affairs initiatives and Department that support students today.
The University of Kentucky recently established the Burch Society to honor the outstanding career of Joseph T. Burch. It exists today to advance his ambitions for the University and the Division of Student Affairs and to recognize his overall dedication to excellence in higher education.
To qualify for membership in the Joseph T. Society, one can make a gift to the University of $5,000 or more in cash, securities or personal property having this accepted appraised value; indicate the intention to contribute $5,000 or more to the Division within a ten-year period (such a pledge to be payable at the rate of $500 or more annually); or signify, by appropriate means, the intention to give $25,000 or more by means of a bequest, some form of permanent life insurance, or with a charitable remainder or other trust agreement. Such gifts may qualify the donor for the designation university Fellow, and, if half or more of the gift is for the Division of Student Affairs, for membership in the Burch Society.
The qualifying gift to the Division may be unrestricted, or it may be designated for a special use within the Division as agreed to by the donor and the Vice President for Student Affairs.
