The Sarratt Society

“What you do for Vanderbilt will live on and on.”—Dean Madison Sarratt

Dean Madison Sarratt lived these words, spending 62 years investing heart, mind and soul in Vanderbilt University and its students. The Sarratt Society was formed to honor those who, like Dean Sarratt, recognize the importance of investing in Vanderbilt and have included the university in their estate planning. Thousands of alumni and friends have realized how planned gifts "live on and on" at Vanderbilt, creating even greater opportunities for individuals to learn, explore, teach, discover, heal and care. Now more than ever, Vanderbilt's future relies on the planned gifts that alumni and friends make today, which will provide for an even brighter tomorrow.
