The Meusch Legacy Society

Photo of a building on campusThe Meusch Legacy Society was created in 1999 as a way to recognize the generosity of individuals who have included Elmhurst College in their estate plans. The Society is named for the Rev. Philip Meusch, who served as president of Elmhurst College from 1875 until his death in 1880.

Society membership is automatically granted to those who include the College in their estate plans through such means as a bequest, a life insurance policy, a trust, or a gift annuity. Members receive a bi-annual newsletter that honors members' contributions and provides useful information about estate planning. In recognition of their support of the College, Society Members are invited to the annual President's Appreciation Event.

If you have any questions or want to learn more about giving strategies, please contact Valerie Day, Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations, at 630-617-6424 or; or Andrew Knap, Senior Director of Development, at 630-617-5682 or We would welcome the opportunity to speak with you and help you determine the best ways to achieve your goals and at the same time make an important commitment to Elmhurst College. If you have included the College in your estate plans, please let us know so that you may be recognized as a member of the Meusch Legacy Society.
