Give: Giving Societies

Armstrong gratefully recognizes the loyalty and commitment of alumni, parents, faculty and staff, and friends of the university through our donor recognition societies.

Heritage Society Logo

Heritage Society

Celebrating those who have chosen to name Armstrong as a beneficiary through a planned gift, such as a bequest in a will. The Heritage Society supports not only the present needs of the university, but also seeks to make provisions for future generations of Armstrong students.

Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others.

Armstrong’s arboretum campus is full of stately trees that are strong, full of life, and deeply rooted—but even the majestic oak trees flanking Burnett Hall began as acorns.

Armstrong Society members all made a first gift to the university, and then continued to nurture their philanthropic impact. As individuals, couples, or organizations support the university, their growing long-term commitment and generosity is honored.

Lifetime giving to the university is celebrated at the following levels:
