1912 Legacy Society
Your Legacy | Our Future

The 1912 Legacy Society was established to honor the thoughtful generosity of those who have included Farmingdale State College in their estate plans or who have made and documented a gift to Farmingdale for future support of the College in their financial plans. Through their planned gifts, members of The 1912 Legacy Society will ensure that Farmingdale remains an engine of opportunity for the future of Long Island and beyond.

We invite you to join our proud alumni, faculty, staff, and friends and become a member of The 1912 Legacy Society. To make a gift for the benefit of Farmingdale State College through your estate plan, please specify the legal beneficiary as Farmingdale College Foundation. The 1912 Legacy Society donors may designate their planned gifts to a particular school or program of their choice. Gifts can be used to establish an endowed fund or added to an existing fund to sustain annual gifts in perpetuity.
