Our Legacy Society

The Hobart Society was formed as a way to recognize and thank alumni and friends of William Paterson University who decided to leave a legacy for the University through a bequest, charitable gift annuity, gift of life insurance, charitable remainder trust or other planned gift.


Membership in the Hobart Society is conferred when the donor notifies the William Paterson University Foundation that the University is the beneficiary of a gift through his or her estate, or through a planned gift during his or her lifetime.

Once you complete your estate plans, please fill out our member profile form to let us know.


Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others.

Hobart Society Member benefits include recognition in University publications- WP Magazine and Hobart Society Times newsletter, invitation to attend Distinguished Lecturer Series as guests of the University, invitation to attend an annual reception for Hobart Society members, invitation to attend estate planning seminars scheduled during the year, a certificate to commemorate your induction into the Hobart Society and an elegant lapel pin that can be proudly worn at various William Paterson University functions.

The most important benefit, however, you will receive from joining the Hobart Society is the satisfaction derived from making a lasting contribution to our long-term prosperity.
