Sierra College Legacy Society

Our Legacy Society was created to honor individuals who believe in providing a quality education for students today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.

Legacy Society members who include Sierra College in their estate plan or in a planned gift arrangement enable Sierra to achieve its goals now and into the future. Legacy gifts help provide scholarships for students and vital support for the College's outstanding faculty. These planned gifts also help to build new buildings and enhance academic programs and services. To view stories from current members, click here.
