Legacy Society

The 1847 Legacy Society recognizes the enduring value of education. It celebrates the vision of the founding friars who laid the foundation for what is now Saint Francis University. Like those founders, individuals who support the University through bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable trusts, life insurance and other planned vehicles are building a foundation for future generations. Your legacy gift helps us fulfill its promise of providing a high-quality education grounded in our Franciscan Values.

Thank you to those Legacy benefactors who have allowed us to list their names on this site. The University is grateful for your support of our mission and values through a planned gift.
