Creating a legacy


By making a planned gift to the University of Redlands, you join a group of dedicated supporters who treasure our University, ensuring a liberal arts education for future generations. We recognize this thoughtful and generous group as the George P. Cortner Heritage Society, and we are extremely grateful for its members’ generosity.

The George P. Cortner Heritage Society is named for a man who selflessly served the University of Redlands as business manager for many years. His legacy includes the magnificent oaks lining the Quad, which have provided shade for thousands of students over the years.

If you have included Redlands in your will, trust, or other part of your estate plan, or if you have questions about how to do so, please contact or 909-748-8840 so we can properly welcome you into the George P. Cortner Heritage Society.

“We included the University of Redlands as part of our legacy because it continues to provide my family and me with educational and leadership opportunities, experiences that are second to none, and involvement based on relationships, lifelong friendships, and a closeness that other institutions cannot provide. With children, it was prudent to complete our estate plan with a legal professional, but we felt it important to add a charitable component based on how we were both raised and our belief in giving back, so that Redlands can truly be forever ours.”

Gregg Cummings ’99 and Elizabeth Cummings


“I attended the Whitehead Center for Experiential Learning [now called the School of Business], which helped to make undergraduate degrees accessible to working professionals wanting to advance in their careers. I enjoyed a successful executive career with the State Board of Medical Quality Assurance (now known as the Board of Medical Examiners) and as a legislative advocate representative to the state legislature. My late husband, Forest, and I recognized Redlands as an institution with a high standard for education for all individuals, not just those with means or grades, and we wanted to ensure that type of education for years to come.”

Dolores Grunigen ’86 (Whitehead/School of Business) shown here with late husband Forest Grunigen


“My six years at the University of Redlands was an important experience that I will always value. The small college environment afforded opportunities that have directed many career and personal directions, preparing me for leadership roles in the Peace Corps, Coca-Cola Company, and two Methodist churches. My roots were formed at the U of R, and giving back is a part of our personal commitment to others. The Cortner Society seemed like a logical next step, and we are thankful for the opportunity to make a small difference through our endowed scholarship.”
