The 1899 Society

Recognizing a legacy of giving

At Northern Michigan University we recognize that when you support NMU and its students through planned giving you are making a very special gift.

Planned giving creates a legacy that will benefit generations of students and help ensure that the teaching, learning, and research objectives of NMU will continue to be achieved at the highest levels.

To recognize this extraordinary support, when you designate a gift of $10,000 or more to NMU in your estate plans — through wills, trusts, life income gifts, IRAs, retirement plans, life insurance policies and other vehicles — you will join other select individuals and families in the 1899 Society.

As a member of the 1899 Society you will share a very special place in our university family and inspire others to make a lasting and significant commitment to higher education at NMU.

As a member, you will also have privileged access to special university events, communications and other opportunities to share in the growth and achievements of our students.

In addition, your name(s) will join those of other honored 1899 Society members on a recognition plaque located in the heart of New Jamrich Hall.


If you are interested in discussing a planned gift to Northern Michigan University, please contact the NMU Foundation. We will be happy to explain available planned giving options and to discuss which option might be best for you and your family.
