The Blaisdell Society

The Blaisdell Society is named after James Blaisdell, CGU's founding president. It was his vision of a consortium of educational institutions that led to the creation of the Claremont Colleges, one of the nation's greatest educational centers.

The Blaisdell Society consists of individuals who have made estate commitments or trust agreements with Claremont Graduate University. It is through the generous support of these alumni and friends that CGU has become and remains one of the nation's greatest graduate institutions.

How to become a member
Membership is offered to all individuals and couples who let us know, via a copy of the relevant bequest section, or trust document, that they have included CGU in their estate plans or as a beneficiary of another type of planned gift, regardless of the amount.

These gift commitments may include any of the following:
Benefits of membership
Members of the Blaisdell Society are invited to annual fall and spring brunches held in their honor. Typically hosted at the CGU President's House, these events encourage interaction with faculty and students, especially among those who will benefit from your gift.
