Created to honor the spirit of philanthropy that has nurtured and sustained Holy Cross for more than 170 years, the 1843 Legacy Society recognizes those individuals who have thoughtfully included a gift to the College in their estate plans through a will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or life-income gift such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust.
Membership is entirely voluntary, and there is no immediate gift, minimum gift level, or minimum age required to become a member. Simply notify the Office of Gift Planning of your gift intentions so that we can warmly welcome you and extend an invitation to our annual celebratory events.
By joining the 1843 Legacy Society, you become part of the Holy Cross legacy and will help to inspire others to support the College with future gifts.
For members who are 70 years of age or older, providing simple documentation of a gift intention will allow that future gift to be counted in your current Reunion Class Gift totals.
If you haven't already, we encourage you to consider your own legacy and contact the Office of Gift Planning to discover how you can realize your philanthropic goals. Learn more »
