Pi Beta Phi Foundation

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are an expression of your love for your sisterhood. Marianne Reid Wild Society members have made the ultimate gift to ensure the future of
Pi Beta Phi. 

We honor your gift by recognizing you as a member of the Marianne Reid Wild Society, named in honor of the late Grand President Emerita Marianne Reid Wild, who was the first alumna to name the Foundation as the primary beneficiary of her estate. Her bequest still provides educational and leadership programming today. It's an incredible legacy, as are all planned gifts. Large and small, both unrestricted and restricted, planned gifts are critically important to the future of
Pi Beta Phi. Read more about Marianne and her legacy. 

Is there a minimum for a planned or deferred gift?

No.  As with annual support, gifts of any size are welcomed with gratitude.

How do I become a part of the Marianne Reid Wild Society?

To become a member of the Marianne Reid Wild Society, simply notify us you have made a planned or deferred gift to Pi Beta Phi Foundation. This can include:

  • A bequest in your will or estate document
  • A beneficiary designation of an IRA, life insurance policy, retirement plan or charitable trust
  • Other planned gift options, such as a charitable remainder trust

What are the benefits of being a member of the Marianne Reid Wild Society?

  • Special invitation to the May Lansfield Keller Breakfast at convention
  • Invitation to Trustee receptions hosted throughout the year
  • Special listing in Pi Beta Phi Foundation’s Annual Report
  • Special Marianne Reid Wild Society pin

I am not concerned about recognition. Do you still need to know about my gift?

Part of the reason for notifying us you’ve made a deferred gift is so that we can say thank you and recognize you as a planned gift donor. However, the most important reason to notify us of your gift is to be sure we can fulfill your wishes. If you want to endow a scholarship or fund a particular program, there are specific ways in which your will or estate document should be worded, as well as other signed documents we should have on file so we can be sure we are fulfilling your wishes, exactly as you had in mind.
