Four ways to Support the Ole Miss Women’s Council
Become an Ole Miss Women’s Council member by making an annual gift to join the Rose Society. Your membership may be designated for yourself or as a gift to honor a special person in your life. The Rose Society provides general support; one-hundred percent of your contribution directly impacts student programming.
The classroom is just one dimension of a student's learning experience. The Women’s Council international studies/internship program enables students to expand their horizons, appreciate other countries and cultures, and continue their commitment to making the world a better place.
An endowed scholarship educates students in perpetuity. Contributions of $125,000 for a general scholarship or $250,000 for an independent restricted scholarship are available. An individual, corporation, or foundation can establish a scholarship and be paid in a lump sum or paid over time. Scholarships are often named in honor or memory of a person who personifies its spirit of both leadership and giving, but the endowment can be named at the donor’s discretion.
Consider setting up an endowment for a Women’s Council scholarship through estate planning. Those who either fund or plan a deferred gift, such as a bequest or a life income plan, may, if they wish, become members of the 1848 Society, which recognizes planned giving donors. The scholarship would then be endowed at the execution of the estate.
