Join the Marcus Brown Heritage Society

To recognize those who have invested in Niagara University and have realized the important legacy a planned gift creates, the university established the Heritage Society. Gifts may benefit special purposes such as endowed scholarships or chairs, the Niagara Fund (general purposes) or particular colleges and programs within the university. There is no minimum gift level and membership is permanent and complimentary.

The benefits of joining the Marcus Brown Heritage Society include:

  • Recognition as a Marcus Brown Heritage Society member in Niagara’s University Annual Report and included in formal donor recognition on the campus of Niagara University;
  • Special recognition at selected events, including Alumni Weekend;
  • Invitations to the Marcus Brown Heritage Society’s Annual Appreciation Luncheon and select Niagara University sponsored events including athletic events, guest speakers, and on-campus cultural events sponsored by the Castellani Art Museum and Niagara University Theatre; and

  • A lapel pin and certificate of recognition for joining the Marcus Brown Heritage Society.

The most important benefit, of course, is the satisfaction of knowing that you have made a commitment to an enduring investment in the future of Niagara University and have made an impact on the lives of our students, which is immeasurable.
