Eyrie Society

The Eyrie Society is named after the eagle’s nest to which the bird returns each year, building upon the same nest to make it stronger. This concept of continually building for strength makes this a very appropriate name for the Foundation’s planned giving club. Club membership is composed of donors who have notified the Foundation that they have included the college in their estate plans.
