The Bannerman Planned Giving Society

Arthur Bannerman

Individuals who inform the Office of Advancement of their decision to give to Warren Wilson College through wills, trusts, and other planned gifts are recognized through membership in The Bannerman Society.  This group, named after Arthur M. Bannerman, the first president of the College, joins Dr. Bannerman and the rest of our founders in securing the College's financial future.  Many members of The Bannermand Society have chosen to ensure a bright financial future for Warren Wilson by including the College in their wills or estate plans, with their giving largely targeted towards increasing endowment support of student scholarships and faculty and staff salary support. 

This special group is recognized at various times throughout the year.  If you would like to inform the Office of Advancement of your decision to give to Warren Wilson College through a planned gift, please call 828.771.2042.  We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about how you can support your area of interest at Warren Wilson. Some types of current gifts, such as cash, securities, or real estate may make sense in your situation. You may, however, benefit from a gift which returns an income to you or someone you choose, such as a trust or an annuity, during your lifetime.  To find out more about how you can make a lasting impression on Warren Wilson College through a bequest, click here.
