General George Washington Cullum had a vision for West Point, fueled by great foresight and dedication to preserving the history of our graduates. Upon his death in 1892, he left $250,000 (almost $7M in today’s dollars) to West Point for the purpose of building a Memorial Hall.
What Is The Cullum Society?
Named for Brevet Major General George Washington Cullum, Class of 1833, the Cullum Society of the Association of Graduates was founded to honor the thousands of alumni and friends who made provisions for The Association of Graduates in their wills, trusts or through another type of planned gift.
One of the earliest, most significant planned gifts was that of Brevet Major General George W. Cullum, USMA Class of 1833, who bequeathed funds to build the Memorial Hall later renamed in his honor. Also the author of the “Register of Officers & Graduates USMA,” this publication is perpetuated by his bequest.
If you have planned an estate or life income gift of $25,000 or more to benefit the AOG, we would be honored to add you to the rolls of the Cullum Society. Please send us a copy of the pertinent pages of your will or trust. Members of the Society receive a certificate of appreciation, a lapel pin, invitations to variousWest Pointevents, and the gratitude of the cadets and fellow graduates who will benefit from your generosity.
