Pin honors members of The Pillar Society for including Penn College in long-term giving plans.Pennsylvania College of Technology has established a new society The Pillar Society to recognize supporters who have included Penn College or the Penn College Foundation in their long-term giving plans.

Penn College President Davie Jane Gilmour recently recognized 14 individuals as members of The Pillar Society. Members have established a planned gift that will benefit the college, such as a bequest provision in their will or trust, a charitable gift annuity, a gift of insurance or retirement-plan assets, or other deferred gifts.

Members of The Pillar Society received a lapel pin or stick pin signifying their membership and their support of Penn College. The pin design was patterned after the pillars at the college?s Maynard Street entrance.

During her remarks at the Oct. 22 event, Gilmour thanked the members of The Pillar Society for their long-term assistance in fulfilling Penn College’s mission of offering an excellent technology-based education that is affordable to students.

Individuals who have included Penn College or the Penn College Foundation in long-term giving plans, or who are interested in becoming a member of the Pillar Society, can contact the Institutional Advancement Office at (570) 320-8000 or by e-mail for more information.
