The Heritage Society
de Witt Joins Heritage Society Helm
Lasell Trustee Emerita '46 Lynn Blodgett Williamson has long served as the honorary chair of the College's Heritage Society - Lasell's giving group designed to thank alumni and friends who make planned gifts (such as gifts by Will, charitable gift annuities, etc.) in support of the College.
As of 2011, President Emeritus Thomas E.J. de Witt has joined Williamson as honorary co-chair of the Society. Commenting on his new role, de Witt says, "I was delighted when President Michael Alexander asked me to serve as Honorary Co-chair of the Heritage Society. I look forward to working with Michael, the College's staff and Heritage Society Co-chair Lynn Blodgett Williamson '46 to build the membership of this special organization for Lasell's planned giving donors!"
The Heritage Society and Benefits of Membership
In 1991, then-President Thomas E.J. de Witt and the Lasell Board of Trustees established the Heritage Society to honor and thank those thoughtful individuals who support Lasell through a planned gift. Members of the Heritage Society receive a welcome gift and certificate upon joining, invitations to special events at Lasell, and acknowledgment in Lasell's Annual Report and other donor listings (unless they choose to remain anonymous). Most importantly, Heritage Society members have the satisfaction of knowing they are providing long-term support to allow Lasell to plan for the future, realize cherished goals, and maintain financial stability all for the benefit of its greatest asset - its students.
