Planned Giving - Emily Prudden Heritage Society

Emilly Prudden

Pfeiffer has educated more than 14,000 alumni, enrolls 2,000 students and impacts the lives of many more through community outreach, programs and training opportunities. Today, those who share Emily Prudden's enthusiasm for Pfeiffer's mission are able to follow her example by investing in the university with a planned gift to the society that bears her name.

Members of the Emily Prudden Heritage Society are alumni and friends of Pfeiffer who join this ongoing legacy by including the University in their estate plans. Members may have named Pfeiffer as a beneficiary in their will or utilized any number of other planned giving instruments to invest in the University's future.

The goal of the University is to attract 300 new members to join the society in an effort to sustain the mission of Emily Prudden and Pfeiffer University. Members will be added to the charter class of the Emily Prudden Heritage Society between July 2013-2016. Members of the 1885 Society, Pfeiffer's current planned giving association will be transferred automatically to the Emily Prudden Heritage Society as charter members.

All members of the Emily Prudden Heritage Society charter class will be invited to be inducted through a process that includes special celebratory events, including the dedication of a new campus courtyard. This courtyard, which will surround the bronze likeness of Emily Prudden on Pfeiffer's north lawn, will provide a place of reflection for student, faculty and visitors. The names of charter class members will be captured at this central campus feature to be remembered as partners in an ongoing legacy of education, ministry and service.
