The Northern Oklahoma College Foundation has established the Central Hall Society in order to recognize those alumni and friends who have remembered Northern Oklahoma College in their estate planning. The Central Hall Society recognizes and honors the legacy of these donors.
Why Central Hall?
Through the efforts of the Honorable James H. Wilkin, on March 1, 1901 the Oklahoma Territorial legislature passed an act to appropriate money to establish University Preparatory School in Tonkawa. Wilkin was also able to obtain an endowment of land for the school. Central Hall, the oldest structure on the NOC Tonkawa campus, was the first building constructed for the school. While the institutions’ mission and name have changed over the past hundred years, Central Hall remains the cornerstone of the Northern Oklahoma College campus. Deferred gifts can continue this great tradition of commitment to higher education, enabling NOC to build an even better future.
Membership in the Central Hall Society is open to those who:
- Make planned gifts in the form of charitable remainder trusts (including pooled income fundsand unitrusts), lead trusts, gift annuities, or deferred gift annuities; or
- Make gifts of life insurance or have named the college as the beneficiary of their policy; orhave confirmed non-contingent, bequest provisions; or
- Have named the college as a non-contingent beneficiary of their IRA or other retirement plan.
