The R. Stanhope Pullen Society recognizes alumni and friends who support NC State with deferred gifts. Through their generosity and foresight, Pullen members play a vital role in securing the future of NC State. Just as R. Stanhope Pullen, a leading Raleigh citizen and philanthropist, donated the original 62 acres for the land-grant college now known as NC State, Pullen Society members are laying the groundwork for the future of our great institution.
Membership in the Pullen Society is open to individuals who would like to assure that NC State continues to thrive for generations to come through a variety of estate planning tools such as charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, life insurance and will bequests. Membership offers opportunities to be more fully engaged with the university and fellow Pullen Society members.Office of Gift Planning
