Founders Society

To express its gratitude to those who commit to planned gifts, Nazareth College offers membership in the Founders Society. Individuals who pledge support through bequests, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance and similar deferred and life income instruments are invited to become members and to enjoy special privileges and recognition.

The Founders Society is named for the five Sisters of St. Joseph who founded Nazareth College in 1924. Their vision and dedication built an educational community based on high standards of scholarship, a respect for intellectual diversity, and a concern for the society in which they lived and worked.

Privileges of Membership
Planned giving donors enjoy the satisfaction of advancing the long-term goals of Nazareth College. They also enjoy the financial benefits that flow from sound investment and estate planning. Members are listed in each annual report and receive regular updates on the activities at Nazareth College. Once a year, members are invited to an event at Nazareth College honoring members of the Founders Society. Additionally, Founders Society donors are listed on a plaque that recognizes their generous support of Nazareth College.
