The Ruth S. Harley Society recognizes and thanks alumni and friends who have arranged a bequest or made planned gifts to the University. Anyone who informs Adelphi that the University is named as the beneficiary of a gift through his or her estate, or through a planned gift during his or her lifetime, is automatically enrolled as a member of the Ruth S. Harley Society.
Founded by the Class of 1941 on the occasion of their 50th reunion, the honorary society is named for Ruth S. Harley, Dean Emerita and member of Adelphi’s Class of 1924. See a list of the Ruth S. Harley Society members.
If you have already named Adelphi as the beneficiary of a bequest or planned gift, please let us know through our online bequest form or contact Adelphi at (516) 877-3098 so we can thank you and welcome you as a member.
