An Invitation to Join the 1754 Society
Once you complete your estate plan, please let us know. Columbia would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in the 1754 Society, our honorary society for alumni and friends of Columbia who have made future plans for the University through trust, estate, or other future gifts. Named for the year in which King’s College was established, the Society recognizes the vital role benefactors have played over the centuries in Columbia’s emergence as a preeminent educational institution and the role they play today in ensuring its continued preeminence. Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others.
Columbia welcomes you to the 1754 Society if you have:
- Included Columbia in your estate plan through a will or living trust.
- Created a charitable remainder trust, administered by either Columbia or another trustee, which names Columbia as the remainder beneficiary.
- Entered into a charitable gift annuity agreement with Columbia.
- Named Columbia as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan.
- Established a donor advised fund at Columbia.
