George Petrie’s authorship of “The Auburn Creed” created for Auburn University an enduring legacy that now defines and unites the Auburn Family. His creed has provided unforgettable words of inspiration for generations of Auburn students, alumni, and friends. The George Petrie Society emphasizes the vital importance of planned gifts — charitable commitments through wills, life insurance, annuities, or trusts — and honors donors for creating a legacy for Auburn University and Auburn University at Montgomery through these unique philanthropic opportunities.

Petrie Society members are honored at a biennial reception held in the spring.

For additional information about making a planned gift to qualify for Petrie Society membership, or to notify Auburn that you have included the university in your will or estate plan, contact the Office of Trusts, Estates and Gift Planning by emailing or calling (334) 844-7375.
