The Stockwell Society

Students on campusThe Stockwell Society honors alumni, friends, faculty, and staff who have included a gift to the College as part of their estate plan. The Society is named for Madelon Stockwell Turner, daughter of the College’s first president, Charles F. Stockwell (1843-45) whose generous bequest made possible the building of Stockwell Memorial Library. The Stockwell Society was created in 1982 and currently has over 550 members. Through their generous planned gifts, members of The Stockwell Society ensure the College continues to deliver on its commitment to enhance, enrich, and empower its community long into the future.


In gratitude for their generosity, the College welcomes new members into The Stockwell Society with induction ceremonies held at fall and spring events and by including members’ names on a plaque in the Kellogg Center on campus.


We would be pleased to welcome you as a member of The Stockwell Society. Membership is extended to individuals who make a commitment to the College by including a gift to Albion in their will, creating a charitable life-income gift to benefit the College (such as a charitable gift annuity), giving real property with retained life estates, or by naming Albion College as a beneficiary of one’s retirement account or life insurance policy. There are no minimum amounts to be eligible to join the Stockwell Society and can join anonymously, if preferred.
