In 1995, the Sinclair Foundation formed The David A. Sinclair Legacy in order to publicly thank and recognize individuals and families who have made planned gifts or bequests to the college.
Legacy Society commitments to help assure that Sinclair Community College will remain among the leaders in community college education far into the future.
Legacy members are recognized with a listing in the Sinclair Report to the Community, web site, and in other materials. In 1999, the foundation introduced a specially commissioned memento made in the likeness of David A. Sinclair, who founded the college in 1887. Each year in December, new members to the society are awarded the memento at the annual Donor Thank You Reception. Legacy members are also invited to other special events in the life of the college.
