Members of the Heritage Society are friends in every sense of the word. They believe in value of this law school for past, present, and future generations—and have included the college in their gift planning. In short, they're building a legacy at Mitchell Hamline.
Members include Minnesota Supreme Court Justices, young parents, and many successful attorneys. Several Heritage Society members will make a difference through scholarship gifts for promising students. Others choose to support the clinics, public service, or one of our centers or institutes. The common link between them is they've all chosen to give back by leaving a legacy to support Mitchell Hamline.
Any kind of legacy gift—including a gift in your will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or an income-generating gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust—makes you eligible for membership in the Heritage Society.
If you have already included Mitchell Hamline in your estate plans, we hope you will let us know. Your willingness to be listed as a member of the Heritage Society encourages others to follow your example. We acknowledge and respect those who wish to remain anonymous, but we urge you to notify us of your plans on a confidential basis so we can say "thank you."
If you have not yet included the law school in your plans and would like to explore the best options for you and your family, we would be glad to assist you and your advisors in your planning. Please feel free to contact our Institutional Advancement office:

Members of the Heritage Society are recognized in Mitchell Hamline’s donor report and Hall of Honor on campus, receive our “Building a Legacy” newsletter, and are invited to participate in special Mitchell Hamline events.
