1842 Heritage Society

1842 Heritage Society

In 1968 the Hall of Heritage was created to honor those individuals who have pledged generous, lasting gifts to Villanova University that extend beyond a lifetime. Today, the 1842 Heritage Society is composed of alumni, parents and friends who support the University through estate gifts, life-income gifts or the transfer of assets. Donors of all income levels have expressed their wishes for the future of Villanova through their participation in the 1842 Heritage Society. We invite you to become a part of this tradition. Membership is voluntary and without obligation.

As a member of the 1842 Heritage Society, you will receive special benefits, including recognition in Villanova University publications, invitations to special events, personal communications from the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, and a distinctive membership pin to identify your generosity to others.
