Heritage Club

Anyone who provides for the University in their estate may become a member of the Graceland University Heritage Club. As members, the alumni and friends of Graceland University extend their influence for generations to come, by supporting the University in its mission to provide a quality education for promising and deserving students.

Annual events recognizing new Heritage Club members are held on the Lamoni campus during Homecoming. Members will have their names placed on a permanent Heritage Club Roll of Honor displayed on the first floor of the Higdon Administration Building.
