Report on Giving

Honoring Our Founder

The W. Grant Egbert Founder's Society is a select group of Ithaca College donors who have included a gift to IC in their will or other estate plans.

When W. Grant Egbert founded the Ithaca Conservatory of Music in 1892, he had a vision to create an institution that offered a superior quality of instruction. In 1992, the year of Ithaca's centennial, the Founder's Society was established to honor those who make a continuing commitment to Egbert's vision through planned giving. Donors who make planned gifts play a vital role in ensuring that Ithaca offers unparalleled educational opportunities well beyond their lifetimes.

We'd like to offer a sincere thank you to the following members of the W. Grant Egbert Founder's Society.
