The University of Maine Stillwater Society was created in 2000 to recognize individuals who have made significant financial contributions to the University of Maine. Donors are eligible for the Society based on their cumulative outright gifts and irrevocable planned gifts at the following levels:
|Level 1 - $25,000 – $99,999|
|Level 2 – $100,000 – $249,999|
|Level 3 - $250,000 – $499,999|
|Level 4 - $500,000 – $999,999|
|Level 5 – $1,000,000 & Up|
New members are inducted at a formal recognition dinner each year and presented with a pin symbolic of their respective Stillwater Society level. Members at the Platinum level receive additional special recognition. Nearly 500 alumni and friends are currently Stillwater Society members. Their generous gifts have provided the margin of excellence that distinguishes UMaine today.
The Stillwater Presidential Award for Achievement
In May 2001, the Stillwater Society began awarding The Stillwater Presidential Award for Achievement. This award honors exceptional achievement by members of the University of Maine family. Nearly 20 alumni have been recognized for their achievements to date. The award is bestowed by the president of the University of Maine on behalf of the Stillwater Society.
