Old Main Society

An estate gift is one of the most powerful ways to support students at Baylor University. Upon notification that Baylor is part of your estate plans--through your will, trust, insurance policy, retirement plan, annuity or any other method--you are qualified for membership in the Old Main Society.

Old Main Society, like its namesake, represents the past, present and future of the university. The Society, organized in 1991, recognizes alumni and friends who affirm their commitment to Baylor through a planned gift. Their generosity demonstrates an investment in the future of the University and its mission.

The Old Main Society now numbers close to 1,000 alumni and friends whose gifts, when realized, will endow scholarships, lectureships, faculty chairs and professorships and will enrich the university with many other resources.

If you want to notify us of your estate and become a member of the Old Main Society, contact our Office of Gift Planning. The details of your gift will be kept confidential, and you are welcome to decline public recognition.
