A Legacy of Learning
he Marist Legacy Society is a
valued circle of individuals who
have provided for Marist in their estate
plans and wish to inspire others to do
the same. Its membership includes
alumni, trustees, friends, faculty and
staff, college retirees, and parents and
grandparents—anyone who shares a
commitment to supporting Marist’s
future and its mission of academic
excellence and a tradition of community
and service.
For some people, a planned gift
enables them to support Marist in a
more generous way than may have
been practical during their lifetime.
However, there is no minimum gift
amount required for membership in the
Marist Legacy Society nor is disclosure
of the gift amount required. Individuals
may also join and request anonymity. To
join, you may:

savings bonds, or a life insurance
Create a life-income plan, such
as a charitable gift annuity, which
provides income to you or others
and a gift to Marist
