John Simmons Society

Planned Giving to Simmons University

The John Simmons Society, named for the University's founder, honors those alumnae/i and friends who have included Simmons in their estate plans through a bequest or other planned gift, such as a retirement plan designation or a charitable trust. These individuals continue the legacy of John Simmons, who directed that his estate be used to establish Simmons University.

This special program gives the University the opportunity to acknowledge your thoughtful planning for Simmons’ future. By joining the John Simmons Society, you benefit the University in two meaningful ways: through your own gift and by inspiring others to take advantage of these special ways of supporting Simmons.
