The Heritage Society was founded in 1993 to recognize alumni and friends of the University of Idaho who have made a commitment in their estate plans to support the strategic initiatives and goals of the University. These caring donors can be certain that future generations of students, faculty and staff will benefit from their foresight and generosity. Estate gifts are among UI’s largest sources of support.
There are over 600 members of our Heritage Society, and new members are being added continually. Many Heritage Society members are regular annual contributors, and some have even made major lifetime gifts, although neither of these is a prerequisite.
To become a member, please let us know you have made a gift to the University through your estate plan using the Heritage Society Form, and your name will be added to this list as an example that can influence others to make the same commitment.
