Heritage Society

Heritage Society

The Heritage Society honors alumni and friends who have included Fresno State in their last will & testament or have made some other type of planned gift to the University. Membership is automatically conferred upon notification that you have arranged to make a gift to the University from your estate.

Heritage Society members are invited to campus each year to attend a special luncheon where they are recognized for their planned gift. Attendees are treated to an update by the University President, who shares some of the exciting things happening on campus. Members also have an opportunity to meet and hear from students who are personally benefiting from past estate gifts to Fresno State.

We encourage donors to allow their names to be published so that their generosity serves as an example to those who may want to consider similar gifts. However, Fresno State respects the wishes of those donors who wish to remain anonymous.
