The UNM Foundation: Our Stories of Impact

New Horizons Society

The UNM Foundation created the New Horizons Society in 1998 to recognize individuals and families who have included The University of New Mexico in their estate plans. Members are honored at an annual event that celebrates the impact of estate gifts on UNM’s students, faculty, patients and programs. If you name The UNM Foundation as the beneficiary of an estate gift of any size, we want to welcome you as a New Horizons Society member. Estate gifts include a provision in a will or trust, a beneficiary designation (on a financial account, retirement plan, or life insurance policy), or any arrangement providing lifetime income to the donor. For more information, please contact Associate Vice President of Planned Giving Bonnie McLeskey at Bonnie.McLeskey@unmfund.org or (505) 313-7610.
