The Heritage Society

The Heritage Society-Comprised of a special group of supporters who believe in the mission of the university and want to ensure that valuable life-changing educational programs and services will continue for future generations.

Each member of The Heritage Society has remembered the university through a charitable bequest intention, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, or other estate planning arrangements with a value of $10,000 or more. Membership in The Heritage Society is activated when the donor notifies Winston-Salem State University that he or she has named the university as a benefactor of these types of "planned" gifts.
