Order of the Sabre

Hargrave’s Giving Societies recognize our generous donors, nurture friendships and encourage supporters to recruit others who believe in the Academy and the mission of building young men into leaders of character prepared for lifelong success. 

What Is the Sabre Club?

Sabre pin

In 1988, Hargrave’s Board of Trustees established the Order of the Sabre to specially honor those whose annual gifts have surpassed $1,000 each fiscal year. The Order of the Sabre (Sabre Club) has become a close family of loyal supporters who make a significant impact on the Corps of Cadets with their annual gifts. The Order of the Sabre is comprised of alumni, parents, grandparents, staff, faculty, and friends. Each year, Sabre Club donors are recognized at the Sabre Banquet, where they hear firsthand from staff and faculty, and most importantly, from cadets whose lives have been impacted by their generosity.

Join the Sabre Club Today!

When you donate to Hargrave, you commit to helping the Academy build young men into leaders of character prepared for lifelong success.
