Judge Russell Society

Named for Menlo College’s legendary teacher and administrator, the Judge Russell Society serves to recognize those who are investing in the future of Menlo College through the use of lifetime and estate gifts.

Recently I attended the 2014 Commencement ceremonies at Menlo College and while I was waiting for the event to start I realized that I had graduated exactly 50 years ago! 

When you get to this age, you start to think about “estate planning." I’ve included Menlo College among my bequests for some 20 years now. I am not wealthy and can afford only a small annual gift to Menlo each year, but it dawned on me that I could make a more significant donation from my estate. That is now in place and I’m very pleased.

I hope others will consider including Menlo College in their estate plans. You have the ability to make a real impact to a very special place."

— Peter Mansfield
