Emilly Prudden

Pfeiffer has educated more than 15,000 alumni, and in addition to the new students enrolled each year, the university impacts many others through community outreach and special programming. 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 recognized by a special designation that bears her name.  

The Emily Prudden Heritage Society members 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 ongoing goal of the University is to encourage and identify new members to join the society in an effort to sustain the mission of Emily Prudden and Pfeiffer University.

Emily Prudden Park was created in 2017 near the entrance to the Misenheimer campus, in front of Jerry and Evon Jordan Hall, as a place of recognition for Emily Prudden Heritage Society members. The courtyard surrounding the bronze likeness of Emily Prudden provides a place of reflection for students, faculty, and visitors to campus. The donor names captured at this central campus feature will be remembered as partners in an ongoing legacy of education, ministry, and service.
