Giving to Merrimack

1947 Society

The 1947 Society, honoring Merrimack’s founding year, was established to recognize Merrimack alumni, parents and friends who demonstrate their generosity and commitment to the College through a planned gift.

Invest in the future of Merrimack College

Including Merrimack College in your estate plan is a simple, yet powerful, way to invest in the future of the College. When you make a planned gift, of any size, you help strengthen the Merrimack College experience for the next generation of scholars.

You can enhance campus priorities that have personal meaning to you, such as financial aid, career and student support services, athletics, the arts and service-learning and mission opportunities. Or you can make an unrestricted gift that enables Merrimack to best address its future needs. Whatever your commitment, you’ll join a special tradition of giving and be welcomed into the 1947 Society.

At Merrimack College, alumni, parents and friends are invited to remember the College in their estate plans. Planned gifts provide options for making your charitable gifts in ways that may allow you to:

  • Make a larger charitable gift with greater impact than you thought possible
  • Provide inheritances for your heirs at a reduced tax cost
  • Reduce your taxable estate and maintain control of your assets
  • Leave a charitable legacy for future generations

By joining the 1947 Society, you become part of the Merrimack College legacy in support of educational excellence and help inspire others to support the College with future gifts. The 1947 Society donors will be invited to the College’s annual recognition event.

It is important to notify Merrimack College that you have included the College in your estate plans.
