Planned Giving Donors Leave a Lasting Impression
Millican Society Event Honors Supporters and Namesake
Donors who have included UCF in their estate plans were honored last night at a specialÂ recognition event held at the Morgridge International Reading Center (MIRC).
The Millican Society, named for UCFâ€™s founding president, was established in 2000 and recognizes those individuals who make a planned gift commitment to benefitÂ UCF and its students. â€śWe appreciate the support of all of our donors, but Millican Society membersâ€™ support is especially meaningful because it so significantly impacts UCFâ€™s future,â€ť said Donald Hale, director of Gift Planning at the UCF Foundation.
President Hitt reflected on the societyâ€™s namesake, the late Dr. Charles Millican, with whom he shared a special friendship. He called Millican a â€śtrue pioneer whose creative vision, trailblazing spirit and clear resourcefulness inspired many.”
Hitt thanked donors for their commitment to to UCF’s long-term advancement and said that Millican would be happy to see so many people who believe in “the good work that he began and that we are doing, and will continue to do, at UCF.
“As members of the Millican Society, you are envisioning the future of UCF and planning for its success, just as Charlie did early on,” said HittÂ . In addition to decades of visionary leadership, Millican and his wife, Frances, also left an enduring legacy to UCF in their own estate.
Society members were also treated to a talk and tourÂ from MIRC director, Dr. Enrique Puig, who shared the history and goals of the magnificent state-of-the-art facility.
