Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Circle?

The Roberts Circle is made up of over 600 alumni and friends of the College who choose to give anywhere between $1,000 and $100,000 per year. The Northeastern Circle has over 290 members who give $500 or more to the Seminary.

Why join the Circle?

Each gift makes an impact on the lives of our students, enabling women and men to receive a transformational education. You also receive exclusive benefits, invitations to special events, and opportunities to connect to the President, faculty, staff, and students. Be a part of an elite group of people who all believe in Roberts and Northeastern and the missions they pursue.

What if I am already a Circle member?

Join the “other” Circle! If you are already a Roberts Circle member, join Northeastern Circle, and vice versa. Or, if you help us get a new Roberts or Northeastern Circle member before Homecoming, you BOTH get a package!

What if I graduated from an undergrad program in the last ten years? 

In order to enable younger alumni to be a part of the Roberts Circle, and to recognize the sacrifice of a gift rather than the actual gift amount, we invite people who have graduated in the last 10 years with their undergrad degree to give at the GOLD Level by giving $500 (or $42/month).
