From its early days as a teaching school to its prominent place as one of Tennessee's fastest growing universities, Austin Peay State University has enhanced the lives of countless individuals within the region and far beyond our state's borders. In order to preserve this tradition of excellence, as well as to provide an ever-growing pool of qualified employees to the job market, the University must rely on our faithful friends and alumni.
The advent of the Austin Peay Legacy Society signifies a new era in the University's effort to recognize, in a meaningful way, all those who share a commitment to the traditions and future of APSU.
Legacy Society members ensure the health of this vital institution. They do this through gifts that build the endowment, allowing income from this perpetual fund to support all areas of the University.
You can make a committment to APSU and join the Legacy Society by including the University in your will, trust and other estate plans.
Joining the Legacy Society
If you have already made provisions for APSU in your will or through another type of planned gift, or if you want more information about how planned gifts can be an integral part of your estate planning, contact us so we can welcome you into the Legacy Society and thank you personally for your support.
