The Walker Society Logo

Woodberry’s financial strength is built in large part on the estate gifts of alumni, parents, and friends. Most estate gifts support the school’s endowment, providing perpetual support to the boys, faculty, and staff. In 1992 the trustees of Woodberry Forest established the Joseph G. and Violet N. Walker Society to recognize the special generosity of alumni, parents, and friends who have included the school in their estate plans through a provision in their will or as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance policy, trust, or annuity. The society has more than 600 members, of whom more than 400 are still living.
