Donors recognized as Carillon Circle members have chosen to continue the generous legacy of alumni and friends by remembering the University with a commitment through their will or other estate plans. This support includes bequest intentions, gifts that provide a life income (such as charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities), gifts of real estate, qualified retirement plan assets and other deferred gifts.
The establishment of the Carillon Circle was inspired by the Class of 1907 and their donation of the carillon that was placed in the bell tower of Memorial Hall, the center of campus. At the dedication ceremony in 1959, the class stated that they hoped this legacy would “warm the hearts and lift the thoughts” of Blue Hens for generations to come.
