Herrick Society

The Herrick Society extends membership to donors who make any size bequest or long-range gift. Whether made through will commitments, life income gifts, charitable trusts, life insurance, retirement plans or other arrangements, long-range gifts are essential to the continued growth of Kent State.

Dr. and Mrs. Herrick passed away in 2008 (Art at age 100 and Margaret at age 89), but their legacy is preserved through their gift planning.

Annual Herrick Society Luncheon Recognizes Donors who remember Kent State and WKSU-FM in their Estate Plans. 

Since 2007, an annual appreciation luncheon is hosted by the president each summer at the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center to thank those who have documented a planned gift with us. The luncheon features a keynote speaker from the university, a prize raffle and an opportunity to visit campus and see friends and colleagues.
