Your Legacy at Georgian Court

Vision for the Future

More than 100 years ago, the Sister of Mercy had a dream of creating a college devoted to educating young women. Now with over 2,300 students offering 30 undergraduate and 10 graduate degrees to men and women Georgian Court has achieved this and more! Our fiscal and institutional strength through the support of our alums, longtime friends and community members has resulted in a growing endowment that secures our financial stability. Planned gifts, which offer the opportunity to make a gift from your assets without impacting your current financial position, strengthen Georgian Court University so that we will remain vital and strong for future students. Join us by considering a planned gift.
