Ellis C. Maxcy Legacy Society

The Ellis C. Maxcy Legacy Society

The Ellis C. Maxcy Legacy Society honors individuals who value higher education and make sustaining the University of New Haven part of their legacy. By joining the other members of the Maxcy Legacy Society, you are affirming that you want part of your legacy to be supporting the education of students at the University of New Haven. Nearly all students receive financial aid from the University, and as a Legacy Society member you are helping put students on a path to a productive and meaningful life.

The Ellis C. Maxcy Legacy Society is named for a long serving leader of the University. With the support of community leaders and grateful alumni, the two-year New Haven College that started in 1920 has developed into an innovative University with more than 7,000 students. Donors like you who include the University in their estate plans join a collective effort to develop the creativity and vitality of our society through education.

We welcome you to explore our legacy society further by reviewing our informative materials on planned giving here.
