Phelps Smith Society

We all want to give back to something that has been meaningful in our lives. Planned gifts are one way to do that. They provide creative, flexible and easy strategies for you to make a gift to Paul Smith’s College. The greatest benefit, however, lies in knowing you are supporting the work at Paul Smith’s College, and ensuring that the next generation of Paul Smith’s students has the same rewarding experiences as you did. 

The Phelps Smith Society is named for the son of Paul Smith. His bequest of the Smith family land and wealth was the very beginning of Paul Smith’s College. The Phelps Smith Society recognizes and honors donors, alumni and the friends who have provided estate gifts through bequests, trusts and other life income arrangements.

Your gift can be directed to support programs that are close to your heart such as scholarships, endowed professorships or capital improvements, to name a few. Read about more benefits of society membership.
