Heritage Society
How the U of M recognizes donors who make estate and other planned gifts

Join the President’s Club Heritage Society, and you will be among our most forward-thinking donors who have made a gift that will benefit the University beyond their lifetime. Estate and other planned gifts provide valuable support for our students, faculty, and programs, and help sustain and strengthen the University for future generations.  

You can make an estate gift by including the University in your will or trust, or naming the U as a beneficiary of a retirement account. There are also planned gift options that provide income to you or others.

As with any gift, you can direct your estate or other planned gift to the campus, college, or program of your choice.

If you have included the University of Minnesota in your plans, thank you! Please let us know what you wish to support with your gift.

Members are enrolled in the President’s Club and are invited to the annual Heritage Society reception and dinner. The dinner is an opportunity to welcome new members and honor existing members for their gifts to the University of Minnesota.
