The Kean Medallion Society recognizes those individuals who have chosen to leave a legacy by including a charitable gift in their wills, trusts or estate plans to benefit the Kean University Foundation. You can also qualify by naming the Kean University Foundation as the beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary) on any of your life insurance, IRA and/or 401(k)/403(b) accounts, or through a charitable gift annuity, unitrust or life estate gift.

Members of the Kean Medallion Society are recognized in several ways:

  • Listed in Kean University Foundation's annual report;
  • Recognition at special events;
  • Featured in donor stories on the Foundation's website and in our quarterly planned giving e-newsletter.

All members of the Kean Medallion Society will also receive a special lapel pin indicating their membership.

If you have already included the Kean University Foundation in your estate plans, please let us know so we may express our gratitude. Announcing your gift can inspire others to give, but we will also respect your preferences for anonymity, if that is your wish.
