Society of the Torch

NYU Stern gratefully acknowledges the donors who have recognized the importance of planning their philanthropy through bequests and other arrangements.

NYU Stern celebrates our members of the Society of the Torch, a special group of alumni, faculty, and friends who have provided for the Stern School and its students through a gift in their will or other estate plan.

The Society finds its inspiration in a ceremony conducted during the University's commencement exercises, when a senior faculty member passes the University Torch to the youngest undergraduate degree candidate. Just as the passing of the Torch symbolizes the continuity of learning, membership in the Society honors supporters who share the foresight and commitment that enables NYU Stern to fulfill its mission of passing the light of knowledge to future generations.

Members of the Society who have provided for NYU Stern through a bequest or other estate plan arrangement will receive: invitations to select special events, including Stern’s annual Haskins Award Dinner and its Spring Scholarship Reception; an exclusive lapel pin only available to Society of the Torch members; and regular updates on the latest developments at the Stern School.

Already planned a meaningful legacy gift to Stern? Let us know. We want to thank you and ensure your gift is used exactly as you intend. Contact Kathleen Koehler at 212-998-0596 or to make your generosity known.
