The Benedictine Legacy Society is a special group of friends who have made a lasting commitment to inspiring students by naming Benedictine College as a beneficiary in their estate plans such as their will, trust or by beneficiary designation. You can join this caring group when you make the college part of your legacy. By doing so, you will get to:

  • Meet people like you— with similar philanthropic interests
  • Maintain a closer relationship with our shared mission and goals
  • Experience engagement opportunities set aside solely for people who have made Benedictine College an important part of their lasting legacy

Any gift, no matter how small or large, will make a huge impact on our vision to become one of the great Catholic colleges in America. Members of the Legacy Society will be honored on a donor wall in Legacy Hall and at an annual event.


Please contact us if you’ve named Benedictine College in your estate plans or complete this convenient form. We’d like to recognize you for your generosity and ensure we can carry out your wishes as you intend.
