Join The McCallen Society

Photo of McCallen Society members holding an SJU bannerA defining moment in the University’s history, its relocation from its humble beginnings on Lewis Avenue to the sprawling 100-acre Hillcrest Country Club property in Queens in 1955, was inspired by the vision and wisdom of former University treasurer Rev. Thomas J. McCallen, C.M.

The McCallen Society—named in his honor—serves to thank Gift Planning donors who include St. John’s in their estate plans. Members fulfill their philanthropic goals by securing a future for loved ones and providing much-needed funds to support facilities enhancement, scholarships, advanced technology, and innovative academic initiatives at the University.


McCallen Society members receive The McCallen Message, a quarterly estate-planning newsletter, as well as invitations to estate- and financial-planning seminars and special events held throughout the year.

If you’ve already included St. John’s in your estate plan, we would like to personally thank you and invite you to join The McCallen Society—our planned giving society. To confirm your intentions, please print and complete the membership form and mail it to the address below.
