As Cornellians, we
have long been familiar with University clubs, organizations, fraternities,
sororities, and the like. The few societies with which we had knowledge
while on campus were those that recognized outstanding scholarship
. . . and now we hear the term, "Cayuga Society," and may ask, "Whats
it all about?"
Plainly and simply,
the Society is one that honors those who remember Cornell in their
will or through a planned
gift. The latter
include, among other options, life income agreements, trusts, real
estate with retained life use, life insurance, or contributions
to the Cornell University Foundation.
Started in 1993, the
Society has 2,700 members, to include your 44 classmates who
have contributed $16,566,005 through
2002 . .There is no minimum gift level if one chooses to join the
Society, nor are there any membership fees or dues. Members have
the option to receive a memento of appreciation, invitations to special
events, and recognition through the Universitys
planned giving publications.
