Cornerstone Society

When you include the College in your legacy planning, you are recognized as a member of the Cornerstone Society. For decades, hundreds of individuals and families have remembered North Central through their wills, life income plans or other planned gifts. Regardless of the size of gift, legacy planning provides resources to the College and has made a tremendous impact to our students and our campus that will last in perpetuity. For that, we are forever grateful.

We honored the Class of 1973 during Homecoming 2023 and welcomed them into the 50-Year Club. Following in the tradition of presenting a class gift to the College, the highlighted names below have chosen to include North Central in their planned giving, which is also added to the overall gift goal set by their class.

If you don't see your or your family's name listed below, please let us know! Email or call us at 630-637-5213.
