Luminary Society

Lighting the Path
for Future Generations

Stories of Giving from Luminary Society Members.
The Case Western Reserve University Luminary Society honors alumni and friends who have made a planned gift to the University. Planned gifts "light the path" for our University community -- helping us to not only think beyond the possible, but redefine what's possible.

Membership in the Luminary Society ensures that you are kept up to date on developments here on our campus, as well as on the University's efforts and impact across the globe. You are provided with unique opportunities to be involved with the University and to receive invitations to special events and activities. Finally, membership in the Luminary Society reflects your special commitment to the University and provides us with the opportunity to recognize and celebrate that commitment and the impact it will have on our future. Luminary Society members are provided with a crystal candle holder, which symbolizes their commitment to "light the path" for our University community.

To join, you simply make a bequest, establish a charitable gift annuity or trust or make a gift using your life insurance, retirement plan, or other assets.

Let's discuss your planned giving options and/or membership in the Luminary Society. Please contact Charles M. Miller, Esq., in the Office of Planned Giving at 216.368.8640 or cmm38@case.edu.
