The CIIS Heritage Society is a community of philanthropists (lovers of humanity), in this case those who love and care about the future generations of CIIS students, faculty and staff. Members of the CIIS Heritage Society have included CIIS in their estate plans in the following ways:

  • As a beneficiary of a will. Any fixed amount or percentage qualities.
  • As a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
  • As a beneficiary of a retirement plan.
  • As a charitable gift annuity or remainder trust that pays regular dividends to the donor during their lifetime.

The CIIS Development Team invites you to join the Heritage Society and secondarily to set an example for others. Becoming a member is easy: Simply complete and return the estate intention letter.

Members are recognized in an online honor roll of donors and receive special invitations to exclusive CIIS donor-only events. Most importantly, you will be helping the institution you love and you will receive profound appreciation of the CIIS community.

The CIIS student body continues to attract and to graduate inquisitive intellects and idealists searching for ways to improve the world. Estate gifts ensure CIIS's ability to enrich the educational experience for future students, support faculty and academic research, provide scholarships, and keep the CIIS library and facilities up to date for generations to come.

Please include any special instructions so we can be assured that your gift will be used exactly as you intend.

We are deeply grateful that you are choosing to become a member of the Heritage Society. Please contact Charles Wilmoth at 415-575-6269 or cwilmoth@ciis.edu to let the Institute know of your estate gift and allow us the opportunity to show our appreciation for your generosity.
