HBS celebrated the official launch of the new John C. Whitehead Society in New York City in December. Nearly 150 alumni and friends gathered at the New-York Historical Society. Attendees from California, Florida, and Massachusetts joined many others from New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey.

Named in honor of the late John C. Whitehead (MBA 1947), a visionary business leader, government official, and philanthropist, the society recognizes alumni and friends who make legacy gifts to HBS by including the School in a will, trust, or other planned gift arrangement.

The event, cohosted by Beth (MBA 1984) and Mike (MBA 1982) Fascitelli, paid tribute to the life of Mr. Whitehead and illustrated the lasting impact of legacy gifts on HBS. As Dean Nitin Nohria said in his remarks, “Very few institutions in the world outlive us. HBS’s future — its success and its strength — depends on the legacy gifts alumni make today.”

There are more than 700 founding members of the John C. Whitehead Society. Learn more about legacy gifts and the Society at giftplanning.hbs.edu.
