The Regents Program provides for the advancement of Sherman College.

Its members support the college with annual gifts of $1,000 or more, and the collective financial commitment of its members has been a major source of funding for the college’s annual fund since the program’s inception in 1977.

Regents are leaders and advocates for the profession and participate in activities that give visibility and stature to Sherman College. Whether through speaking engagements, legislative roles, student referrals, or financial support, regents are an effective and vital group in their support of the college.

You may join the program online or contact Assistant Director of Advancement Services Patti Lee Thomas below.

Regent-level donors receive a plaque and a date plate for each year of participation in the program. All pledges to Sherman College automatically renew in January; donors will receive a letter of renewal from the Development office.

  • 1,000 Patron Regent
  • 1,500 Patron Regent Couple
  • 2,000 Pioneer Regent
  • 4,000 Visionary Regent
