Rev. Elijah Craig, a Baptist minister, established the first classical school in Kentucky in 1787. The school was later linked to the Rittenhouse Academy, and led by Rev. Craig. Georgetown College traces its roots to that early school.

GOLD is the name given to the group of alumni who graduated in the last ten years – the Graduates Of the Last Decade. Many GOLD alumni wish to be leadership donors to Georgetown but do not have the means since they are starting families and are still in the early stages of their careers. With this in mind, we offer GOLD alumni the opportunity to become Young President’s Club members – our leadership gift club – at a reduced level. The normal level to be a President’s Club member is $1,000, but GOLD alumni can be members for $100 multiplied by the number of years since graduation.

For the 2014-15 fiscal year, the giving level to become a Young Alumni President’s Club member (Elijah Craig level) is as follows: (based on the following class years)

2015/2014- $100
2013- $200
2012- $300
2011- $400
2010- $500
2009- $600
2008- $700
2007- $800
2006- $900
