Westcott Society and President's Club

Deferred and testamentary gifts

The James D. Westcott Legacy Society is a tribute to the visionary James D. Westcott and to all generations of Florida State University benefactors who embrace his vision and who share his high ideals. Recognition in the Westcott Legacy Society is offered to all alumni and friends who have designated contributions to academic programs at Florida State University in their estate plans.

Honorees of the Westcott Legacy Society receive an invitation to our annual event with university leaders, faculty and students who have benefited from their generosity; invitations to other donor-only events; and recognition in our Honor Roll of Donors.
