The Bellarmine Society

The Bellarmine Society includes alumni and friends who have included Fairfield University in their estate plans. Their gift planning takes many forms: bequests by will or trust, retirement plan beneficiary designations, immediate and deferred gift annuities, charitable lead and remainder trusts, and other tax-favorable options.

The Bellarmine Society recognizes the individuals on the Honor Roll of Donors for their foresight and their intent to help assure the future of Fairfield University. Members are regarded as important partners of the University with a special relationship.

Members join because they care about their alma mater. They want to leave a legacy reflecting the value they place on an education grounded in Jesuit values and to impact the experience of future generations of Fairfield University students.

The time is now! It is never too early to make plans for your future — and the University's.

Join the many other alumni, parents, and friends who are making a difference at Fairfield. Take advantage of the planning tools and resources on this site. Then, please contact us! Together we can develop a planned giving strategy that is right for you.
