"Leaving a Legacy at Campbellsville University"
Founded in the 1980s, the Covenant Society was established to recognize and celebrate a special group of individuals who have included Campbellsville University in their estate plans. Since its inception, many alumni, parents, and friends have made Campbellsville a beneficiary of their estates. In accordance with the donors' intentions, these gifts have been used to support the mission of Campbellsville University.
For generations of alumni, Campbellsville University has been a meaningful part of their formative years.
The forethought of establishing a planned gift has a dramatic impact on CU and its students in the growth of our endowment. Please consider Campbellsville University in a meaningful way when you create or update your estate plan.
