The McCallen Society: A Community of Friends

The McCallen Society is a community of generous alumni, benefactors, and friends. Members demonstrate their commitment to the spirit and values of St. Vincent de Paul by including St. John’s University in their estate plans. Their planned gifts fund scholarships, programs and initiatives as well as University enhancements, and facilities upgrades needed to ensure student success.
For members, the benefits are academic, cultural, and social. There is an exclusive invitation from the Office of the President to attend an annual luncheon where they meet with St. John’s leaders and students. An update is provided by the President to attendees on the latest happenings at the University. In addition, the members are invited to off-campus events which include a special Christmas celebration and visits to historic and cultural sites such as the opera and New York Public Library’s special collections.
The McCallen Society is a unique opportunity to make friends and have fun while supporting the mission of St. John’s University. To join, fill out our online membership form or contact my office to learn more.
