Siena’s beginnings were initiated by several notable figures of the time, but seven Franciscan Friars of the Holy Name Province are considered to be the Founding Friars of Siena College for their zeal and commitment in making the College a reality in 1937.
In recognition of the impact of Franciscan Friars on the mission of Siena and the education provided to Siena students since opening its doors, alumni, parents, and friends who make gifts to Siena College for two consecutive years or more are welcomed as a member of the Founding Friars Loyalty Society.
Consecutive years of giving are counted by fiscal year, which runs from June 1 thru May 31. Donors remain in the loyalty society as long as they continue to make annual charitable gifts to Siena.
- Charter Member: 2-6 years of consecutive giving
- Milestone Member: 7-14 years of consecutive giving
- Lifetime Member: 15+ years of consecutive giving
In recognition, members will receive:
- Eligibility in prize drawings for fun Siena or Founding Friars Loyalty Society prizes throughout the year. Prizes will begin being drawn in Spring 2016
- Founding Friars Loyalty Society Sticker at Siena events
- Recognition in all donor listings for the fiscal year in which consecutive gifts are made to Siena College.
