Deferred Gifts

Carolina Guardian Society

Members of the Carolina Guardian Society share a commitment to the future of the University, demonstrating their dedication and support by including the University in their estate plans. Through their gifts and commitment, these donors provide an opportunity for a future even greater than Carolina's founders envisioned more than two hundred years ago.

The name of the society was drawn from the commencement speech offered in 1823 by Thomas Cooper, the University's second president: "I pray you, become the guardians of this...alma mater so...that to have been a graduate of the South Carolina College, shall everywhere be considered as a fair passport to the world's esteem."

Membership is offered to all individuals who have made a planned or deferred gift commitment to the University, and all eligible donors are encouraged to enroll. The following are members whose gifts will benefit the University Libraries:
