Dear Alumni & Friends

On behalf of the Office of Alumni Affairs, I want to thank you for your continued support of B-CU. Legacy Partners has been created to help the University raise unrestricted dollars and increase alumni giving percentages. One of its primary objectives is to develop a sustained interest in, and substantial support of, Bethune-Cookman University among our alumni and friends. If you were a life member of the national alumni association, we will grandfather you into the program under the Associate category.  Simply, complete the pledge form and enclose any proof of your past life membership.  Membership in the Legacy Partners Giving Society is also available to all alumni, faculty, staff, and friends.  To join, complete the pledge form and enclose your initial payment based on your desired level, and watch your dollars at work.  Your membership category will be determined by accumulating all hard credit gifts from the past three fiscal years.  We need your involvement in order to continue strengthening support for the university. If you have questions regarding the Legacy Partners Giving Society, please contact the Office of Alumni Affairs at alumni@cookman.edu. Thank you for your partnership.

 

Legacy Partners Giving Society Overview

The Legacy Partners has been established to assist the university in its long-term development goals. Specific objectives of the society are:

  • To develop sustained interest in and substantial support of Bethune Cookman University among alumni and         

     friends.

  • To provide a medium for meaningful participation in matters of major consideration related to plans and problems

     of continuing program development at Bethune Cookman University.

  • To provide an organized medium through which considerable numbers of alumni and friends can be recognized

     appropriately for significant contributions to the university.

 

Meetings

The annual meeting of Legacy Partners is held on the campus in the month of September of each academic year during a home football game.  Members are encouraged to attend these meetings, at which time opportunity is provided for them to obtain first-hand information about the university’s overall program and meet officials responsible for expanding the innovative and dynamic disciplines initiated by the institution.

 

Membership

The membership will consist of alumni and friends and is restricted to individuals only. There are five categories of membership available, with the option to move from one category to another. Membership is not automatic; completion of a pledge or request must be made. Initial membership payment can be pledged over three years. There is a minimum annual unrestricted donation required to remain active. Once the minimum amount for a category is achieved, members are moved to the next category, assuming they are active members.
