Members of the G. Atwood Manley Society have expressed their commitment to St. Lawrence University through a planned or estate gift. The simple act of making this type of gift has a dramatic impact and provides transformational opportunities for students through current-use or endowment support for scholarships, professorships, internships and more.
If you have included St. Lawrence in your will, estate plan, or as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account you can easily join the Manley Society by sharing these pieces of information (* required field):
Your membership allows St. Lawrence to thank and recognize you for the visionary plans you have made through your estate. Unlike most memberships, there are no dues or fees, just our sincere gratitude.
In addition, we know that Laurentians who leave a legacy gift to their alma mater inspire others to consider the same.
G. Atwood Manley Society member benefits include:
a special lapel pin and welcome letter
invitation to the annual Reunion luncheon and other special events
newsletters and other updates
special listing in the Leadership Donor Report
with verification, your planned gift can count for your next Class Reunion and for The Campaign for Every Laurentian
However, the most important benefit you will receive from joining the G. Atwood Manley Society is the satisfaction of knowing that the plans you make now will help the Laurentians of tomorrow.
(Optional) If you are interested, you may email us a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org and share a short summation of why you have included St. Lawrence in your estate plans. Your photo and a brief narrative may be included on our Meet Our Donors and/or in other materials to inspire more Laurentians to join you!
Perhaps the most important benefit you will receive from joining the Manley Society is the satisfaction derived from making a legacy gift today that provides for tomorrow.
The Manley Society is named for G. Atwood Manley, Class of 1916, a writer, publisher, volunteer and donor – and a lifelong supporter of St. Lawrence. Today the Society is 800 living members and active pledges nearing $200 million.
