Heritage Circle

The Heritage Circle honors living brothers and their families who have chosen to include the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation as a beneficiary in their will or estate plans. This prestigious society was established in 2000, and our Heritage Circle members have solidified their commitment to Building Better Men for generations to come. Heritage Circle members are honored on a permanent recognition plaque at the Fraternity's International Headquarters and periodically receive special communication and event invitations.

DU Brothers Leaving a Legacy

Brothers Peter Bridgford, Northwestern ’56 (right), and Leslie Dashiell, Miami ’52 (left), each considered the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation in their estate plans as members of our Heritage Circle. These transformational gifts secure the future of the Fraternity and inspire the generation of DU brothers to come.

In Brother Bridgford’s case, his $3,770 bequest provided a much needed boost to our Annual Loyalty Fund and will further our educational priorities with an investment in our endowment.

Brother Dashiell directed his estate gift of $38,000 toward the Miami Chapter Legacy Plan, which secures the educational program attendance of his fellow undergraduate brothers and a sense of longevity for his beloved chapter. 


70% of adults in the U.S. do not have a will. Estate planning is traditionally considered complex, scary and expensive. That’s why FreeWill set out to build a simple tool that anyone can use to create these important documents. All estate plans made using FreeWill are 100% legal and specifically tailored to your jurisdiction.

FreeWill also believes in the human instinct to do good—that’s why they have made charitable giving especially easy. To date, people have used their platform to commit more than $2.6 billion to nonprofit organizations.

FreeWill really is free, and Delta Upsilon is proud to partner with them so that our alumni can secure the future of their loved ones and their favorite charitable organization. FreeWill's no-cost estate planning tools are made possible by the support of hundreds of nonprofit organizations that work on meaningful issues. Many people who create their estate plans on FreeWill choose to leave a gift to a cause they care about, and we hope you’ll consider doing the same. It's never too soon to consider the legacy you want to leave behind.

"When I received the offer from the DU Educational Foundation to utilize FreeWill, it seemed like a natural opportunity to think long term and how to create a lasting influence. As the only organization I listed in my will, I realize the impact that Delta Upsilon had on my personal and professional life. I wanted to make sure to continue that legacy in any way that I could for future brothers. I've always wondered about the right time to create a will but hadn't taken the first step, and this prompted me to do so. I was impressed by how streamlined the platform was in making what I viewed as a complicated and unknown process very easy."
