What is the Heritage Society? 

The University of Charleston is here today because generations of people have loved Morris Harvey College and the University of Charleston, and made supporting it a part of their lives. Because many of these gifts came through bequests, often the University did not have the opportunity to show appreciation to the donors. For this reason, the University of Charleston established the Heritage Society in 1990 to recognize those who have made a commitment of any amount to UC through bequests and other planned gifts.

Through the Heritage Society, the University recognizes and thanks visionary donors, promotes the benefits of estate and financial planning, and draws attention to the vital importance of building the University of Charleston’s future.

What are the levels of member support? 

  • The Platinum Circle is our highest level of recognition, for those who have notified the University that they have made planned gifts and also have endowed an academic scholarship. 
  • The Gold Circle recognizes donors who have notified the University that they have committed gifts through planned giving. 
  • The Silver Circle recognizes donors who have established an endowed scholarship for the benefit of our students.
