1746 Society


Giving Back 

   Princetonians of every generation are united through the tradition of giving back. The reasons are as diverse as they are. Many who received financial aid as undergraduates are eager to provide the same kind of assistance to current and future students. 
   Some want to provide young men and women with an education equal to the extraordinary one they experienced. Others have a keen interest in a particular area of study and want to support students and faculty members in that discipline. A number want to keep fellow alumni engaged with Old Nassau and to help the University recruit new generations of Princetonians. Still others want to provide new buildings and facilities to ensure that the University has the physical resources it needs to stay on the leading edge of teaching and learning. 

   The 1746 Society is Princeton’s program for honoring and thanking those who have arranged a planned gift or bequest to the University. The Office of Planned Giving has enabled many alumni to Give Back using one of these popular formats:


  • Charitable Remainder Trust- Lifetime payments to donor may grow over time; future support to Princeton Programs.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity- Lifetime payments to donor at fixed rate (currently 6.8%); future support to Princeton programs.
  • Charitable Lead Trust- Current support to Princeton Programs; future gifts to heirs with gift/ estate tax savings.
  • Bequest to Princeton in your will- Estate tax savings; future support to Princeton programs.

     R. Gordon Douglas, MD '55 gave Princeton a house on the Connecticut shore near where he lives with his wife, Sheila Mahoney. "When I did the math," he said, "this came out well for me.It ensured income for us, as well as allowing us to make a substantial gift toPrinceton -- a classic win-win situation." They are active members of his class, which he served as president from its 50th to 55th reunion, and Douglas loyally contributes to  Annual Giving. "I give to Princeton because it stands for quality," he said. "I know that when I make a contribution it will be well managed and support what I believe in." Douglas says his gift will be directed toward some aspect of health.
