The Dilworth Society was established during Chatham's 125th year to recognize dedicated alumni and friends who wish to remember Chatham University in their estate planning. These plans, such as bequests, trusts or life income gifts, provide a legacy that benefit both Chatham and the donor. The Society is named for Joseph Dilworth, one of Chatham's founders and Board of Trustees member, whose bequest for $10,000 established the building fund for the original Dilworth Hall. Documentation of a donor's intention to make a gift of this type to Chatham automatically qualifies for membership in the Dilworth Society. Members receive The Dilworth Planner, a biannual publication that provides useful information regarding gift planning, and a gold tone pin embossed with the Dilworth Society logo – derived from design elements etched in the glass windows of old Dilworth.
