    • LEGACY GIVING—BECOME A MEMBER OF OUR LEGACY SOCIETYPlease consider the Foundation in your estate plans!!

      The Foundation has a legacy society that is designed to give special recognition to anyone (alumni and non-alumni alike) who has notified the Foundation that it has been made a beneficiary of their estate.  What you give won’t be publicized.  No minimum is required either.  You only have to notify us that you have included us as a beneficiary in your estate.  It is that simple!!

      Arrangements should be made through your estate planner or lawyer.  Because the Foundation is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization, legacy gifts can have large tax benefits for the donor.

      Please send verification of donation to the Foundation when complete and we will establish a record of your legacy gift and make you a member of our Legacy Society.   To print the form: Click Here
