Planned Giving

Stetson Society

Exterior view of buildingMembers of the Stetson Society guarantee the future health and excellence of the Kalamazoo College learning experience. For that reason, they are one of the College’s most valued groups. Named after the seventh president of Kalamazoo College, Herbert Lee Stetson (1912–1922), the Stetson Society recognizes those of the Kalamazoo College community—alumni, friends, faculty, and staff—who have generously made planned gift arrangements to support the College. Stetson Society members are often invited to attend special College events.

Making a bequest or other planned gift to support Kalamazoo College allows donors to create a legacy that will impact students after their lifetime. They establish endowed distinguished chairs for professors, and provide for the upkeep and improvement of our beautiful campus, including the initial construction of Welles and Mandelle Halls. Perhaps most significant of all, planned gifts have made a K education more affordable by providing significant scholarship support to our students.
