Legacies today... Opportunities tomorrow... Possibilities forever...

The Heritage Endowment Society (HES) was established in July 2007 to recognize and honor, during their lifetimes, alumni and friends whose vision and leadership inspire them to support the mission of Palmer College of Chiropractic through a cash gift, planned gift or estate gift.

All members of the Heritage Endowment Society are acknowledged annually in the Honors Book and invited to an annual Heritage Endowment Society recognition event. Requests for anonymity are honored.

In addition, qualified members are recognized on the Heritage Endowment Wall, a fitting monument. The wall was built from bricks originally from the Ryan building, where Dr. D.D. Palmer performed the first chiropractic adjustment. Atop the wall sit bronze busts of three generations of Palmers, identified as the Discoverer, the Developer, and the Educator with Mable Palmer, the Chiropractic First Lady, in close proximity-all of whom secured a place in chiropractic history.

If you have already included Palmer College in your estate plan, we would be honored to know so we can properly recognize you as a Heritage Endowment Society member.

If you have any questions regarding the Heritage Endowment Society or about making a planned gift to Palmer College, please contact Lois Kundel at lois.kundel@palmer.edu or at (800) 722-2586, opt. 3, opt. 4.
