Dorsey Baker Legacy Society

Cushing Eells on the steps of the original Whitman Seminary building.In 1863, a generous gift of four acres by local banker Dorsey S. Baker became the Whitman campus. Thanks to the loyal and generous support of thousands of donors since, Whitman is one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges. We are particularly grateful to those who have included Whitman in their estate plans, either through outright bequests or through lifetime gifts.

The Dorsey Baker Legacy Society recognizes and honors alumni, parents, and friends who have established a life income gift with the College or who have named Whitman as a beneficiary of a will, trust, retirement account, or life insurance policy. Planned gifts create a crucial foundation, allowing the College to offer scholarships to deserving students, expand the faculty, provide important co-curricular services to students, and improve the library and other campus facilities. These types of gifts play a vital role in contributing to the future of Whitman and its students, ensuring that the College can continue to provide its unique and intimate educational experience.
