1818 Society

Saint Louis University established the 1818 Society to recognize alumni and friends who have invested in the University's future through their planned gifts. Recognized gifts include bequest provisions in a will or trust, life income arrangements, lead trusts, life estates, gifts of life insurance and beneficiary designations made with retirement assets or insurance policies.

The 1818 Society's name commemorates the year Saint Louis University was founded and became the first institution of higher learning west of the Mississippi. The 1818 Society honors and recognizes those individuals who have made a planned gift as an expression of confidence in the mission of Saint Louis University, which embodies the Jesuit philosophy of academic excellence and service to others. Their generosity will provide the necessary financial support that will allow the University to undertake future projects as it strives to achieve new levels of excellence in fulfilling its mission.
