The Impact of Legacy
Hundreds of alumni and friends have let us know about their intentions to make an impact on Gettysburg College in the future. Here are just a few examples:
The Brogan Fund in Statistics will support teaching and learning while the Brogan Fund for Women's Issues will support activities of interest to the broader campus and local community, thanks to provisions in Donna Brogan '60's retirement plans.
The Robert H. Busch '56 Endowed Music Scholarship, with preference for students studying pipe organ or classical piano repertoire, will be awarded for the first time next year, and enhanced in the future with additional gifts from Bob.
A generous revocable trust provision will fund the Geoffrey '85 and Susan Roome '84 Nelson Endowed Scholarship, to support students with demonstrated need and a history of community service.
Those plans and hundreds of others build on a great legacy of generosity that touches every corner of our campus. For example:
The John N. Adams '70 Professorship in Theatre Arts, established through trust and will provisions, is in its inaugural year. The position is held by Dr. Susan F. Russell.
For nearly 20 years, chemistry students have benefitted from the Mary Albaugh '54 Chemistry Fund for Student Research—perpetual support established through a generous will provision.
The creation of the Center for Public Service was possible in part because of a life insurance policy donated by Stephen H. Warner '68, who was killed in action during the Vietnam War.
