Ignatian Society

The Ignatian Society honors donors who have included Saint Joseph’s University in their estate plans. Membership is earned by providing a bequest in your will, naming Saint Joseph’s as the beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy, making a life income gift such as a gift annuity, or establishing a charitable trust. These gift arrangements demonstrate the commitment that Ignatian Society members have to the long-term future of the University.

Ignatian Society members enjoy

  • Invitations to special campus events
  • A specially-designed pin signifying membership
  • Recognition at University events and in publications

To learn about the Ignatian Society visit the Planned Giving website or contact Office of Planned Giving at giftplanning@sju.edu or 610-660-1968.

The Ignatian Society is named for St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.


“I truly value my education, and know that if it weren’t for Saint Joseph’s, I would not have accomplished much of what I have.”
