What is the Legacy Society?

Legacy SocietyPlanned gifts create extraordinary opportunities to support Webster University. The Legacy Society honors alumni, parents, and friends who, through thoughtful estate and financial planning, ensure that  resources will be available to support Webster far into the future. Gifts might include stocks or bonds, real estate, life insurance or gifts that provide individuals or heirs with lifetime income. The impact of your own planned gift, which qualifies you for membership in the Legacy Society, will last in perpetuity and impact generations of students at Webster.

How do I become a member? 

If you've decided that you would like to include Webster University in your estate plans we'd love to hear from you.   To join The Legacy Society, send us a letter indicating that you have included Webster in your estate plans and include one of the following:  

  • A completed signed Confidential Statement of Estate Gift form
  • A copy of the pertinent provisions in your will or trust
  • A copy of the life insurance policy naming the University as beneficiary
  • A letter from your attorney stating that you have included Webster in your estate plans

Webster will keep your information confidential.  Sharing your intentions with Webster enables the University to plan for the future and allows us to celebrate and recognize your decision while we work with you on the specifics of your intention.
