1754 Society

The 1754 Society is Columbia University’s honorary society for alumni and friends who have included the University in their estate plans through trust, estate, or other future gifts. Named for the year in which King’s College was established, the Society recognizes the vital role benefactors have played over the centuries in Columbia’s emergence as a preeminent educational institution and the role they play today in ensuring its continued preeminence.
