Kaleidoscope Society

Kaleidoscope Society

The Kaleidoscope Society was created to recognize lifetime giving of $10,000 or more. Donors at this level of support have shown consistent and significant appreciation for IMSA and its students, projects, and many programs offered throughout the state.  In addition to the listing below, we showcase Kaleidoscope Society members by displaying their name on the donor wall at IMSA's main entrance by giving level. The established donor recognition levels are as follows:

  • Cyan Society ($5,000,000+)
  • Magenta Society ($2,500,000+)
  • Violet Society ($1,000,000+)
  • Indigo Society ($500,000+)

While we carefully prepare this donor list, we recognize that errors may have occurred. Please accept our apology if your name is not properly represented and contact IMSA at (630) 907-5040 so that our records can be corrected. Thank you!

Muon Society

The Muon Society honors donors who have notified us that they have created a gift to IMSA through their estate plans (including bequests, trusts or annuities). The Muon neutrino was discovered by IMSA co-founder Dr. Leon Lederman, for which he won a Nobel Prize.  The Muon is one of the longest lasting elements in the universe.  Appropriately, gifts from Muon Society donors, often for endowment, are some of the longest lasting.  To learn more about making a planned gift to a program or to the IMSA Fund endowment, or to notify us that you have already done so, please contact us at (630) 907-5040 or
