The Marianist Province established the Marianist Legacy Society to recognize those who follow in the footsteps of the pioneering priest, Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, who founded the Society of Mary in 1817.

Marianist Legacy Society members provide the financial resources needed to support the work of the Marianists in the United States and around the world into the 21st century.

The Marianist Legacy Society is open to friends who make a commitment to the Marianist Province through their wills or other planned gifts. Members may remain anonymous, and gifts of any size are included.

If you have already included the Marianists as a beneficiary of your estate plan, please call or email either Bro. Jim Brown, legacy giving director, or Carol Gauder, legacy giving assistant, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m (Eastern Time), 937-222-4641. Or call toll free, M-F, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. (Eastern Time), 1-800-348-4732.
