Lindenwood Heritage Societies are comprised of alumni and friends who have secured the future of Lindenwood and her students with provisions in their estate plans or have promoted the growth of Lindenwood through significant charitable gifts.

The Sibley Heritage Society

The Sibley Heritage Society is comprised of a select group of alumni and friends who have secured the future of Lindenwood University and her students with provisions in their estate plans. Membership is for individuals who have made arrangements through a variety of estate planning tools such as bequests in a will, trust or life insurance policy.

The Sibley Heritage Society is named in honor of Lindenwood's founders, Major George and Mary Easton Sibley. The Sibley's vision for academic excellence was supported by sound financial planning to secure Lindenwood's heritage for years to come.

Sibley Heritage Society members are annually invited to a special recognition dinner in the fall with Butler Society members. Lindenwood honors members with a beautiful keepsake and showcases exceptional student talent.

Recognition of your gift may inspire generosity in others and enable the university to conduct long range planning on a more informed basis. Please let us know if you have already included Lindenwood in your estate plans, we would love the opportunity to say "thank you."
