The 1888 Society recognizes individuals who have notified us that NMSU is included in their estate plans as the beneficiary of a will, trust, life income gift, life insurance policy, retirement plan or other planned gifts. Participation in the 1888 Society can be an inspirational experience, and has proven to encourage others to look toward the future and consider philanthropy.
The greatness of our university begins with people, and we would be pleased to join with friends like you who are committed to bringing State to the next level of excellence. Planned gifts, whatever the amount, provide critical support that enables New Mexico State University to expand the frontiers of knowledge through our land-grant mission of teaching, research and service.
Members of the 1888 Society are recognized in the annual Partners in Excellence donor recognition book. The list is also published periodically in our 1888 Society newsletter, Look to the Future. Members receive invitations to special events planned for this coveted group.
If you have made plans for a planned gift and have not notified us, please contact us. NMSU is grateful beyond measure for your consideration of making a planned gift, and it inspires us in all we do.
