The Legacy campaign has nearly tripled planned gifts to the university! When the “100 Legacies for Belhaven Campaign” was first begun in early 2009, there were only 13 gifts on record. Thanks to the efforts of the Development Office staff and Campaign Co-Chairs, Vern Kennedy and Newt Wilson, we now stand at 39 planned gifts. We are almost halfway to our goal of 100!

The 100 Campaign seeks to create awareness of the benefits of developing a comprehensive estate plan that will allow participants to jointly provide for their family and expand the mission of Belhaven.

The most recent member of the 100 Campaign, #39, Marimae Clark Coleman, made a specific bequest because of the friends and fond memories that she has from Belhaven. “Many of my close friends I made during my days at Belhaven,” says Marimae. “When J.T. Simmons (longtime Belhaven advisor and husband to one of Marimae’s best friends Betty Clark Simmons, ’60) suggested I include Belhaven in my will, it just seemed like the right thing to do.”

Following are the names of the 39 friends who have included Belhaven in their estate plans. Larry Mills ’61, Assistant to the President, would welcome the opportunity to discuss your personal situation and offer ideas that would work best for you. Contact Larry at 601-968-8738 or by email at 100legacies@belhaven.edu.
