The Frank Palmer Speare Society

Frank Palmer Speare Society gathering
Speare Society Fall Luncheon, October 2019

The Frank Palmer Speare Society honors and advances the astounding legacy of one man who guided the development of the university from the very beginning and served as Northeastern's first president.

Established more than 30 years ago, the Frank Palmer Speare Society was formed to recognize and celebrate those Northeastern alumni and friends who have demonstrated their generosity and commitment to the university through a planned gift. Such legacy gifts might include a bequest, a beneficiary designation in a retirement plan or life insurance policy, a charitable gift annuity, a charitable remainder trust, gifts of real estate or any other planned gift that provides for the future of Northeastern.

As a member of the Frank Palmer Speare Society, you are invited to special gatherings throughout the year and receive a membership pin recognizing the lasting bond of your philanthropic support. Above all, you will have the certainty of knowing that your gift will continue to enhance Northeastern's tradition of excellence while providing for future generations of students.

If you are not yet a member but have aleady made arrangements for a legacy gift to Northeastern, please let us know! We look forward to getting to know you and hearing your Northeastern story.
