The Heritage Club at Augustana College was established in 1982 in order to recognize those individuals who have chosen to provide gifts to the college by means of wills, insurance policies, and special trust and annuity programs.
In order to encourage friends of the Center for Western Studies who wish to make planned gifts to the Center, the CWS Board of Directors established a special category of recognition within the college's planned giving society: The Heritage Club for the Center for Western Studies.
To date, more than 70 individuals are members and have remembered the Center in their estate plans. Whether it be a gift by will, a life insurance policy, trust, or annuity, Heritage Club members are ensuring a strong CWS into the future.
Please contact Harry Thompson, Executive Director, at (605) 274-4006 for more information on joining the Center's Heritage Club.
