About the 1871 Society

A torch logo for the Elmhurst University 1871 Society.

The 1871 Society recognizes the generosity of individuals who have included Elmhurst University in their estate plans. The Society is named in honor of the founding year of our institution.

Society membership is automatically granted to those who include the University in their estate plans. Members receive an 1871 Society pin, exclusive newsletter and frequent invitations to, and recognition at, University events.

We welcome the opportunity to speak with you and help you determine the best ways to achieve your financial goals while simultaneously benefitting Elmhurst University. If you have included the University in your estate plans, please let us know so that you may be recognized as a member of the 1871 Society.
