The Granite Society

Illuminating the generosity of the University of New Hampshire’s leadership donors

The Granite Society is UNH’s leadership gift association established to recognize our most loyal and generous donors.

Like you, these individuals understand that an annual investment in UNH is an investment in transforming lives of our students and our faculty but these leadership gifts have an enhanced ability to make the UNH experience extraordinary.

The Granite Society exists to help grow our culture of philanthropy, create lifelong connectedness from matriculation on and to recognize and thank the university’s leadership donors who demonstrate their belief in UNH through their gift.

All alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends are invited to join The Granite Society annually by participating at one of the following levels:














$25,000 and up
