Tau Beta Pi's Planned Giving Society
Members of Tau Beta Pi have always been respectful of its heritage and dedication to the future of the organization. Each person expresses this in his or her own way—many volunteer for a variety of assignments, others serve on committees and boards, many participate regularly in the annual giving fund, and those with vision plan a bequest to Tau Beta Pi in their lifetime. By making a planned gift they know that Tau Beta Pi will not only be there, but will prosper to serve the leaders in engineering in the future.
Join this distinguished roster of loyal Tau Bates (and many others) by becoming a member of The Heritage Society. Remember, there are many ways of giving and your plans are confidential. The Tau Beta Pi Association that you have included Tau Beta Pi in your will at any level, and you are automatically a member. Members will be recognized annually in THE BENT.

*Note - The Scholarship Program, established in 1998 with a gift from an alumnus to award several $2,000 scholarships annually, has grown with recent bequests from nine awards in 1999 to 275 in 2018. Growth projections forecast funding 250 or more annual scholarship awards for several years.The Heritage Society was established in 2001 to recognize and honor those who continue the tradition of outstanding support by remembering TBP in their plans. Heritage Society members, listed below, have included a provision in their estate plans to benefit the Association and have informed TBP of this commitment. Their support is gratefully acknowledged.
