The W.S. Lewis Heritage Society honors individuals and families who have placed Morningside University in their estate plans or made a gift to the endowment. It is named in recognition of Bishop Wilson Seeley Lewis, former President (1897-1908), who in 1903 established the College Endowment Fund.
Membership in the W.S. Lewis Heritage Society is by written confirmation of your deferred gift arrangement. Qualifying gifts include wills, trusts, life insurance, IRA's, retirement plans, current gifts to endowment, or life income arrangements.
In joining the W.S. Lewis Society, you affirm the dream of Bishop Lewis whose vision has led to a current endowment valued at $56 million. Morningside University will continue to be a viable educational institution with the continued support of our current benefactors.
