Invest in the future of human creativity.

Named in honor of John Haviland, the legendary architect of Dorrance Hamilton Hall, the Haviland Society recognizes dedicated benefactors who make annual gifts of $1,000 and greater to UArts.

The Haviland Society comprises UArts alumni, parents, and friends. Through their generosity, these donors are investing in our mission of advancing human creativity. While gifts toward the annual fund support the university where it is most needed, gifts may also be designated toward the initiative(s) of your choosing, such as scholarships, a specific school or program, UArts Cares, and other initiatives.

Haviland Society members receive insider access, invitations to exclusive events and networking opportunities, special recognition in Edge magazine, and other perks.

Become a member of the Haviland Society by making an annual gift of $1,000 or greater. You can make a gift online, call 215-717-6149, or mail a check made payable to University of the Arts to the following address.
