The 1870 Society
Your planned gift to Syracuse University will have a strong and lasting impact on preserving the University's cherished past while securing its bright future. In addition to the many financial advantages you receive for making a life income or estate gift, your generosity will inspire other Syracuse University alumni and friends to consider making a planned gift of their own.
When you create a planned gift, you will be recognized as a member of the Syracuse University 1870 Society—a special group of visionary individuals who have included the University in their long-term financial and estate plans. Our members are insightful leaders who guide the way for future generations of Syracuse University students.
In order for us to properly thank you, welcome you as an 1870 Society member, and ensure we understand how you'd like Syracuse University to use your gift, please let us know of your bequest intentions. If you would like to remain anonymous, we will gladly honor your request.
