Heritage Society: An Opportunity to Give Thanks

Homecoming is a time of celebration and reminiscing, but it is also a time to give thanks.

Homecoming weekend will kick off with the annual Heritage Society Dinner and Reception on Thursday, October 10th. The President hosts the Heritage Society members as a way to say thank you for their commitment to the University of Dubuque. Members of the Heritage Society are those generous people who have named the University of Dubuque in their will or have donated to a deferred giving plan.

The Heritage Society, founded in 1980, currently has over 200 members. While many members are alumni, some members are faculty, staff or friends of UD. Four new members will be inducted into the Heritage Society during the Homecoming dinner. New members include: The Reverend David and Julie Dendy; R. Kenneth Jackson and Bonnie R. Jackson; David and Kate Moore; and Dale and Diane Repass.

They are motivated to give for many reasons, including their belief in the University of Dubuque and the students that we serve. Members have established scholarships that students today are benefiting from. Many have also established scholarships that will start when the member passes away – so future students will benefit from their gift.

We are grateful for the generous actions of past and present Heritage Society donors. Acquiring new Heritage Society members will be the key to endowing the University’s future.


Thank you to all Heritage Society members for believing in the University of Dubuque. A list of all current members is below (* indicates those that have passed away since Homecoming 2012).
