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 Marcus Brown 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.

Planned gifts support many areas of the university, from endowment to capital improvements and scholarships. The following alumni and friends have left Niagara University a legacy gift and are recognized as members of our Heritage Society:
