George Petrie (1866-1947), best known for his authorship of the Auburn Creed,
demonstrated remarkable dedication and generosity toward Auburn University. To
this day no one has ever bequeathed more to Auburn. His creed has provided unforgettable
words of inspiration for generations of Auburn students, alumni and friends. This
special society emphasizes the vital importance of planned gifts which secure
the future of the University. To become a member of the George Petrie Society
notify the Office of Planned Giving at 334-844-7375 that you have included Auburn
University, the Auburn University Foundation or Auburn Montgomery in your will
or estate plan. Petrie Society members are honored at a biennial reception held
in the spring.
