Heritage Society

Grand View has a rich heritage. In 1896, the Danish founders of this institution were deeply committed to aiding the development of young people by providing a quality educational experience. Growing from its early "folk school" roots, Grand View has become a strong, vibrant university offering both undergraduate and graduate programs. Today, Grand View continues to position itself to meet the changing times and the ever increasing demands of its current students. An institution of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Grand View opens its doors and hearts to students of all faiths, offering them a quality, affordable education.

Contributions and sacrifices of those from the past have made it possible for students today to enjoy a vibrant learning environment and life experience. Grand View has been blessed with literally thousands of alumni and friends throughout the country who hold their Grand View experiences dear and whose lives have been positively affected by their studies at Grand View. Many of these individuals have stepped forward to demonstrate their loyalty by becoming members of the Grand View University Heritage Society through a planned gift.

The Grand View University Heritage Society is made up of individuals and families...

  • whose lives have been touched in some way by the Grand View experience.
  • who desire to see their support of the school continue after their passing.
  • who see the need for a strong endowment for the future of the institution.
  • who have remembered Grand View with a planned gift.

The Heritage Society was established in 1987 to recognize those who, with vision and generosity, have made a provision for Grand View through a will, trust, annuity, life insurance policy or some other form of planned gift.

For many Heritage Society members, a planned gift is an extension of a donor's generosity and support of Grand View during their lifetime.

Heritage Society members are partners in Grand View today and help ensure the quality of Grand View's faculty and programs well into the future.

Becoming a Heritage Society member is easy...

  • Notify the Advancement Office that you have remembered Grand View in your estate plans; or
  • Call the Director of Campaign Giving at 515-263-2828 and ask for assistance in your estate planning and your intention to include Grand View;

Benefits of Heritage Society Membership include...

  • A special invitation and recognition at the Presidents's Club Dinner during Homecoming weekend.
  •  The gift of an oak-framed watercolor print of the Humphrey Center (Old Main).
  • Members names are added to the Heritage Society Recognition Wall, located on the second floor of the Humphrey Center (Old Main).
