The Barge Society

This group, named after the first hall on campus, recognizes those who have made arrangements with Central to provide gifts through their estate plans or through other planned giving options. Acknowledging donors during their lifetime for future gifts to Central is the primary goal of the Barge Society. By notifying the University Advancement office of your intentions, you provide the opportunity for Central to strategically plan for the future with the knowledge that resources will be available.
