Planned Giving

Founders Society

This society recognizes, without regard to amount, those who have made a commitment to the future growth of Ashland University or Ashland Theological Seminary through their estate plans and provided some type of notice of such intention thereof. Gifts provided may be either deferred or made currently and given via direct transfer of assets, by will or trust, through life insurance products, or through annuities, charitable trusts or other life-income agreements.

The Founders Society was established in 1988 to emphasize the importance and advantages of including the University in personal estate plans. Becoming a Founders Society member demonstrates not only a supportive role in Ashland's future, but recognition of a legacy that lasts well beyond mortality. We salute these very special people.
