Old Main Society

One of Baylor University's great traditions has been the steadfast financial support of the University's mission by alumni and friends. The Old Main Society was established in 1991 to recognize alumni and friends who have affirmed their commitment to Baylor through purposeful planning and provision in their estates. Such gifts create transformational opportunities for Baylor students, helping to change the world in a powerful way by fostering its future leaders. The Baylor family will be forever grateful to all those who have chosen to leave an enduring legacy of support which continues to strengthen this beloved institution for generations to come.


If you have invested in the future of Baylor University or wish to do so through your estate plans, please allow us to recognize that noble act and express to you our deepest appreciation. A planned gift of any size qualifies you for membership in the Old Main Society because every gift has a lasting impact. To find out how you can make a difference in the lives of Baylor students through a planned gift, please contact our Office of Gift Planning. The details of your gift will be kept confidential, and you are welcome to decline public recognition.
