Join the Manitou Heights Society

The Manitou Heights Society recognizes and honors the alumni, parents, and friends who have made planned gifts to St. Olaf College.

The college on the Hill, forever

Like St. Olaf’s 143 years of consecutive operation and the innumerable limestone bricks amassed on its campus, membership in the Manitou Heights Society conveys a similar sense of permanence. Donors who include St. Olaf in their estate plans leave a lasting legacy with their generous gifts and ensure the college’s enduring impact on future generations.

Over 1,500 living alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends of the college are members of the Manitou Heights Society.
