Alumni whose estate gifts to the Fraternity are being put to use Building Better Men.

About The Lester Cox Benefactors

While the Foundation’s Heritage Circle honors living alumni with documented estate gifts, the Lester Cox Benefactors are deceased alumni whose estate gifts have been realized by the DUEF and are being put to use advancing the Fraternity’s educational mission. Estate gifts can provide transformational opportunities to Delta Upsilon, and none more apparent than the bequest received from the man whose name is attached to this elite group - Lester E. Cox, Pennsylvania 1898. Brother Cox gifted a bequest to Delta Upsilon that made possible the construction of the International Fraternity Headquarters in 1971. The International Headquarters houses the Fraternity and Foundation staffs, along with countless images, publications, and artifacts from DU’s archives. Many undergraduates and alumni visit the International Headquarters each year, and the Fraternity is forever grateful to Brother Cox and other alumni who provide lasting generosity with an estate gift.

“Our father loved Delta Upsilon and the many friendships the Fraternity afforded him at San Jose State University and throughout the DU community. Dad volunteered countless hours across many years at both a local and national level. He especially loved developing and nurturing DU undergraduates at the San Jose State Chapter. Our family is pleased that his legacy will live on forever through future generations of undergraduates.”
