Heritage Club

Passing traditions from one generation to another, building bridges from the past to present to future—these are activities for those with vision enough to pave the way into and through the next century. The Heritage Club recognizes those providing future gifts to the university through estate provisions and is appropriate for individuals who desire to ensure the future of UWF through their gifts.

Heritage Club membership is extended to those who have included the University of West Florida in their wills, have established a life-income plan with the University as a beneficiary, have named the University as beneficiary and owner in their life insurance policy, or have made other estate provisions with the University as beneficiary.

Membership in the Heritage Club is a tangible way to let others know of your support to UWF. Donors, however, may also keep their membership confidential if so desired. This recognition gives the university an on-going opportunity to say thank you, either publicly or privately, for these special gifts.


For more information on how to become a member of this prestigious group, contact Robin Zimmern. To notify the University of your intentions, download the Confidential Heritage Club Membership Form and return it by mail today.
