Join the Dental Legacy Society


The Dental Legacy Society of the Medical University of South Carolina is composed of alumni and friends who have planned a gift for the college in their estates. Legacy members demonstrate the true spirit of philanthropy as visionary leaders who invest in the future of the James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine. They are recognized in publications and in perpetuity on the college’s donor wall.

Contributors may design a legacy gift that incorporates planning for inheritance, retirement, estate distribution, financial security and tax wise charitable giving. Planned gifts to the college are an investment in the future of dental education. If you have included the college in your estate plan, let the college know. We want to thank you now for your foresight and generosity and also ensure that we well document how you intend your gift to be used.
