The Rockefeller University’s Laureate Circle recognizes those visionary donors who have included the University in their estate plans. Whether their gift is made via bequest, trust, or other philanthropic arrangement, these generous individuals help advance biomedical research at Rockefeller. Testamentary contributions are tailored to the interests of the donor and may be designated for a specific fund or purpose, such as disease-specific research, graduate and postdoctoral fellowships, professorships, or to a specific program. Creating a planned gift enrolls individuals in the University’s Laureate Circle.
Members of the Laureate Circle are acknowledged in Rockefeller University donor lists and other appropriate University publications, and they are invited to participate in special events. (Members may also choose to join anonymously.)
