Sachar Legacy Society

In the last 65 years, Brandeis University has benefited from the vision and commitment of individuals who have included the University in their estate plans. Over five hundred alumni, parents, and friends have joined the Sachar Legacy Society, named in honor of Dr. Abram L. Sachar, founding president of Brandeis.

The Sachar Legacy Society honors and recognizes individuals who have indicated that Brandeis University is in their will, have established a charitable gift annuity, have created a charitable remainder trust, or set up a pooled income fund or other planned gift. These donors to Brandeis realize the merit and strength of gifts that will provide for the future of this young institution of higher learning.

To become eligible for Sachar Legacy Society membership, an individual simply informs the University in writing that Brandeis University has been included in his or her estate plans.

The University appreciates documentation of the planned gift; for example, a copy of the pertinent provisions of the individual's will or trust, a copy of the life insurance policy that names the University as a beneficiary, or a letter from the individual's attorney stating that he or she has, indeed, included Brandeis in his or her estate plans. Upon receipt of such documentation, participants are enrolled in the Sachar Legacy Society.

If you would like more information about becoming a member of the Sachar Legacy Society, please contact the planned giving office at 1-800-333-1948 ext. 64069.
