Founders' Society and Planned Giving

  • What is the Founders’ Society?

    Pitt-Bradford established the Founders’ Society to recognize alumni, faculty, staff, and friends who have made a commitment to the college through a planned gift to the college foundation, the Bradford Educational Foundation. Planned gifts-gifts made through wills, life insurance, trusts, and other programs-have become an increasingly important source of Pitt-Bradford’s strength and growth. In making these gifts, Founders’ Society members are ensuring that Pitt-Bradford will have the financial resources to provide educational opportunities well into the future.
