The 1865 Heritage Society honors those special individuals who have chosen to include Fairmont State in their will or estate plan. The Society provides a strong foundation upon which Fairmont State may continue to advance its time-honored tradition of providing quality education.

Members of the Heritage Society have the foresight to understand that the future success of Fairmont State depends on the plans we make today. The goal of the Society is to acknowledge these individuals for their vision and to provide a lasting tribute in their honor. Heritage Society recognition is a life-long legacy for donors and their families.
