The 1893 Society

The 1893 Society has been established to recognize the thoughtfulness and generosity of alumni and friends who have remembered the East Stroudsburg University Foundation in their estate plans. Through The 1893 Society, the Foundation has an opportunity to recognize and thank these donors during their lifetimes. These gifts may be charitable life income agreements benefiting the Foundation; inclusion of the ESU Foundation in the donor's estate plans (bequest gifts); or a variety of other charitable vehicles.

Members of The 1893 Society provide a bright future for East Stroudsburg University and generations of students. It is through the vision and generosity of The 1893 Society members that we can fulfill the goal of offering our students the opportunity for self-development, self-expression, leadership and service. Through the years, many alumni who benefited from their education and nurturing relationships with faculty have demonstrated their appreciation for their ESU education through thoughtful and generous planned gifts. These gifts have increased the Foundation's endowment which provides an important source of income to address the University's priorities for scholarship assistance for bright and deserving students, funds for faculty development and opportunities for facility improvements.

For more information on how to provide for the ESU Foundation through your estate plan, please contact us at (570) 422-3333 or email
