The 1851 Society-Lifetime

Named in honor of our founding year, The 1851 Society honors donors who reached a cumulative of outright gifts of cash, securities, gifts-in-kind or a pledge totaling $10,000 and above.

Recognition is also given to those donors who have formally notified the University that they have included a $50,000 bequest to NDNU in their will or to those who have established a planned gift to benefit the University, such as a non-term life insurance policy or a charitable remainder trust with a value of $50,000.

Donors in the The 1851 Society will receive naming opportunities as appropriate, be recognized at the Donor Recognition event, in the University’s Honor Roll of Donors and will receive a commemorative gift.
