1897 Associates

The 1897 Associates recognizes alumni and other individuals who have included Bradley in their wills, estate plans, or life income arrangements.

Life income arrangements can include charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, or remainder interests in residences and farms.

The gift society complements our annual giving societies and allows the University to honor you as a member of a special group of benefactors.  Nearly 600 benefactors have accepted membership since the Society was established in 1992.  Members are noted in Hilltopics (with permission), invited to Founder’s Day and other selected events, and receive a biography of Lydia Moss Bradley, Forgotten Angel.

For more information, please call Shelly Peters, Director of Planned Giving, at (309) 677-4778 or by email at speters2@bradley.edu in the Alumni Relations Office.
