The Joseph Baldwin Society, named after the University’s founder, was created in 1992 by the Truman State University Board of Governors to honor and recognize those who have provided a planned gift for the benefit of the University through the Truman State University Foundation. The University thrives today as a result of Baldwin’s vision and commitment.
Membership in the Baldwin Society is achieved by written confirmation of a deferred gift commitment. Members of the Baldwin Society are invited to the Foundation Banquet held on campus each year.
Qualifying gifts for the Baldwin Society include:
- Bequests | Sample Bequest Language
- Charitable Gift Annuities
- Charitable Remainder Trusts (Unitrust and Annuity Trust)
- Life Insurance
- Life Estate
- Other Life Income Arrangements
