Changemaker Circle


To express its gratitude to those who commit to planned gifts, Nazareth University offers membership in the Founders Legacy Society. Individuals who pledge support through bequests, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance, and similar deferred and life-income instruments are invited to become members and to enjoy special privileges and recognition.

Recognizing Our Donors.

The Founders Legacy Society is named for the five Sisters of St. Joseph who founded Nazareth University in 1924. Their vision and dedication built an educational community based on high standards of scholarship, a respect for intellectual diversity, and a concern for the society in which they lived and worked.

Privileges of Membership

Planned giving donors enjoy the satisfaction of advancing the long-term goals of Nazareth University. They also enjoy the financial benefits that flow from sound investment and estate planning. Members receive insider communication from the University and are invited each year to attend several events held in their honor. In addition, they are invited to meet and engage with University leadership and students as well as enjoy involvement with like-minded friends of the University.
