Embry-Riddle's annual giving clubs were established to support academic programs and student opportunities in all areas. Today, the dollars donors invest not only enhance general programs and operations but also furnish scholarship funds for deserving students and help the university acquire state-of-the-art technology and library resources.
Established in 1986 to celebrate the annual commitment of university supporters, the Eagle Society is comprised of five giving levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Eagles clubs.
Through gifts of $10,000 or more each year, Platinum Eagles have the personal privilege of helping shape the future of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Gold Eagles secure Embry-Riddle's position as an outstanding institution of higher education by making annual gifts of $5,000 or more.
Through annual support of $2,500 or more, Silver Eagles build the unsurpassed training programs that have become a hallmark of our university.
Bronze Eagles give $1,000 or more annually, and help us soar to new heights in educational achievement.
Our large number of Eagles Club donors, who each give $499 or more annually, are the foundation upon which this great university's progress is built.

Frederick “Rick” Brown’s (’67, Flight Training, ’72, DB) love of aviation, entrepreneurship and Embry-Riddle has prompted him to make a major planned gift to the university to support the Daytona Beach College of Business’ Center for Entrepreneurship and establish the Rick and Jan Brown Endowed Scholarship.
For Brown, creating an endowed scholarship and supporting the growth of the Center for Entrepreneurship at Embry-Riddle is a chance to further the work of his mentor, Jack Hunt, to improve the university and the field of aviation.
“Jack Hunt was a visionary and an entrepreneur. He was a really strong mentor for me,” says Brown, “It’s important that people have an entrepreneurial spirit in aviation. Jan and I want to encourage people to think outside the box and create things that could help people in aviation.”
