An Invitation to Join the Kean University Medallion Society

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” - Mahatma Gandhi

The Kean University Medallion Society recognizes and celebrates individuals who have generously provided for the future of Kean through a charitable planned gift in their wills, living trusts or estate plans.

A planned gift of any size is an impactful way to show how important Kean University is to you. Medallion Society members leave a legacy at Kean while also enjoying a deeper connection to the University, knowing that their gifts will significantly impact future generations.

If you have already included the Kean University Foundation in your will or estate plan, please let us know. We would be delighted to welcome you to the Medallion Society and honor you at our upcoming reception. Recognizing our members inspires others to give, but we also respect the privacy of those who wish to remain anonymous.

Medallion Society members are among our most loyal and important donors. Some of the recognition benefits include:

  • A Medallion Society lapel pin to proudly display your support of Kean.
  • Invitations to the Medallion Society Reception, the President's Holiday Party and other VIP events on campus.
  • Special recognition at Kean University Foundation events.
  • Prominent listing in the Kean University Foundation annual report and website, as well as being featured in donor stories in our e-newsletter.
  • Complimentary tickets to athletic events and select performances upon request.
