Paul K. Scott Loyalty Society


Loyal donors are the cornerstone of Cornell's success.  Paul Kenmore “Scotty” Scott ’29, the namesake for Cornell's Loyalty Society, dedicated most of his life to working for and promoting Cornell College--as coach of Cornell's 1947 NCAA championship wrestling team and alumni director from 1954 to 1976.

In recognition of their important commitment, the Paul K. Scott Loyalty Society honors various levels of loyal giving to Cornell — from our Charter members who are just beginning their lifelong commitment to annual giving to our Lifetime supporters who have given to the college for 20 or more years.
  • Gifts of any amount to all areas of the college are counted towards Loyalty Society membership.
  • Consecutive years of giving are counted by fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.
  • Benefits vary as alumni reach new and important levels in their commitment to Cornell.
