Heritage Society

The Heritage Society was established to recognise the generosity and vision of the growing number of alumni and friends who have pledged to support the University of Melbourne through a gift in their Will.

Members of the Heritage Society are invited to attend special events and meet with University leaders, academics and students. Members also receive a copy of the annual newsletter, Creating Futures, with inspiring profiles of current benefactors and celebratory stories of the impact of realised gifts in Will.
